<AuthBy RODOPI> provides authentication and accounting using the popular Rodopi ISP billing package. It is available on Rodopi website Opens in new window. The combination of Radiator and Rodopi provides a very powerful and easy to use ISP billing and user management system. You will be able to add users to Rodopi, and they will be able to log in immediately. Changing their password takes effect immediately, and all user logins details are available as soon as they are completed: no need to import accounting files.
Rodopi uses Microsoft SQL Server for its user database, so in order to make Radiator work with Rodopi on Windows, you will usually need to install an ODBC driver, plus the Perl DBD-ODBC module. On Unix, you will need to install DBD-Sybase and the Sybase client library to allow Radiator to connect to Microsoft SQL Server.
During authentication, Radiator checks the password in the Rodopi “Logins” table. It also gathers radius check and reply attributes from the RadiusUsers table.
<AuthBy RODOPI> will connect to the Rodopi database as the user you specify in the DBUsername parameter. The default user name that Rodopi installs is “Rodopi”, with password “rodopi”.
During accounting, Radiator logs call details from each Accounting request to the Rodopi “UsageOnlineHours” table.
<AuthBy RODOPI> automatically handles Cisco VOIP authentication and Accounting with the Rodopi 5.4 or later Cisco VOIP support. RADIUS requests that contain the cisco-h323-conf-id attribute are handled with the VOIP stored procedures. All other requests are handled with the non-VOIP procedures.
There is an example Radiator configuration file for Rodopi in goodies/rodopi.cfg. You should use this as the starting point for configuring Radiator to work with Rodopi.
<AuthBy RODOPI> understands exactly the same parameters as <AuthBy SQL>. For more information, see Section 3.35. <AuthBy SQL>.
