Fedora Update Notification

Name        : freeradius
Product     : Fedora 19
Version     : 2.2.4
Release     : 1.fc19
URL         : http://www.freeradius.org/
Summary     : High-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS server
Description :
The FreeRADIUS Server Project is a high performance and highly configurable
GPL'd free RADIUS server. The server is similar in some respects to
Livingston's 2.0 server.  While FreeRADIUS started as a variant of the
Cistron RADIUS server, they don't share a lot in common any more. It now has
many more features than Cistron or Livingston, and is much more configurable.

FreeRADIUS is an Internet authentication daemon, which implements the RADIUS
protocol, as defined in RFC 2865 (and others). It allows Network Access
Servers (NAS boxes) to perform authentication for dial-up users. There are
also RADIUS clients available for Web servers, firewalls, Unix logins, and
more.  Using RADIUS allows authentication and authorization for a network to
be centralized, and minimizes the amount of re-configuration which has to be
done when adding or deleting new users.

Update Information:

FreeRADIUS 2.2.4 - minor release. Upstream release notes follow.

Feature improvements

* A "panic_action" can be set to have the server dump a gdb log on SEGV
or other fatal error.
* allow radmin command "set module status <module> <code>" which can be
used to forcibly enable/disable modules.

Bug Fixes

* If the server fails to bind() after fork(), that is now reported to
the parent, which exits with an error.
* Session / delay times in MySQL are unsigned int.
& Use --tag=CC for libtool. Closes #497. Because libtool is too stupid
to notice that compiling means compilation.
* Fix bug when copying attributes for vendors > 32767
* Fix behaviour on FreeBSD where sending packets from an interface bound
to an IP address would fail when the server was built with udpfromto.
* Don't fail config check if were listening on an IP which is also a
home server. Some deployments have valid reasons to loop packets back to
another virtual server.
* Use correct port when DHCP relaying.
* Set source IP address for DHCP packets from DHCP-Server-IP-Address, or
DHCP-DHCP-Server-Identifier, if we're unable to otherwise determine the
source IP.
