7.1. Check items Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

Check items is the name given to the RADIUS attributes in the Access-Request that is checked before the user is granted an Access-Accept. All the check items for a user are checked. If any check item does not match the access is denied. You can have multiple check items for the same attribute, and the check only passes if all check items pass.
Most check items permit exact match, alternation, or regular expression matches. For more information about using them, see Section 7.1.49. Any other attribute defined in your dictionary.
These check items can also be used in the request selection expression in a <Handler> clause. For more information, see Section 3.27. <Handler attribute=value,attribute=value, ....>.
Usually this is used to limit the conditions under which a user is permitted to log on to your system. The most common case is to require a User-Password or Encrypted-Password, and you may also want to limit access via certain NASs, or at certain times. You can use any RADIUS attribute as a check item, and there are also some special attributes that are handled within Radiator in order to provide extra ways of controlling user access.
Since different brands and models of NAS implement different subsets of the RADIUS specification, it is not possible here to describe all the things you can configure in your NAS with reply items. For more information, see your NAS vendor's documentation.
