"If you haven't worked with Unix/Linux servers or command-line driven applications before, FreeRADIUS may seem hard to understand at first. Though there are some GUI utilities available, it's typically configured via only configuration text files.

"However, as you'll see, FreeRADIUS is fairly straightforward to set up. Understand that it "just works", meaning the default configuration files are preconfigured to run most authentication protocols without many or any additional changes.

"Don't change or delete any settings without understanding what it is and what it will do. A simple mistake can break the configuration and it can take hours to troubleshoot. If you make any modifications outside of this tutorial, try to take it step-by-step. Change one setting or a section of settings, then test to see if it works and to make sure you haven't broken the configuration."
