Dear All,

I successfully used freeradius-1.0.5 on our RedHat 7.3 system for a couple 
years to authenticate wireless and VPN clients. I decided to upgrade to the 
version 1.1.5 to enable the wireless connection on a few Windows Vista 

I downloaded the source freeradius-1.1.5.tar.gz and customized the provided 
freeradius.spec. Essentially in the configure I added: 
        --with-openssl-includes=/usr/local/ssl/include \
        --with-openssl-libraries=/usr/local/ssl/lib \
(as openssl-0.9.7i is installed in /usr/local/ssl/lib) and removed:
        --with-system-libtool \)

and succefully produced the rpm for my system.

I installed it and it worked even for 6, 7 hours (enabling the wireless 
clients to work, included the Vista clients) but then invariably it crashed. 
Apparently, (from the various logs attached) it always crashed after the 
configuration reload, but it is not evident if immedialtely after the reload 
or some time later.

The crash can some time be initiated by sending kill -HUP at the radiusd 

Trying to minimze the frequency of the crashed I set:

max_request_time = 10

but without any change in the behaviour.

Any suggestion on how to solve the problem would be appreciated.

Best regards


P.S.: Attached is a partial log (otherwise was too big), only username and 
password are masked). I can provide longer logs on request.
