Hi,

I was going through some of the Pass-through authentication concepts and it has varied options which includes Radius as well. I was bored with local authentication and wanted to try Radius, when searching for alternatives, i saw one called FREERADIUS (http://freeradius.org/)

I have a Raspberry Pi, which am now considering to make it a radius server, a http server for labbing with various HTTP and other authentications methods. More on this can be found at (https://www.raspberrypi.org/). Any standard Linux would do, I chose Raspberry Pi as I had that one handy.

A article on Juniper configuration has been referred here, feel free to browse to Junipers website (https://kb.juniper.net/InfoCenter/index?page=content&id=KB19446)
