ProFTPD module mod_quotatab_radius

This mod_quotatab submodule is contained in the mod_quotatab_radius.c, part of the mod_quotatab package and is not compiled by default. See the mod_quotatab documentation for installation instructions.

This submodule provides the RADIUS-specific "driver" for retrieving quota limit table information from a RADIUS server.


Please contact TJ Saunders <tj at> with any questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding this module.

RADIUS Limit Quota Tables

RADIUS-based quota tables (source-type of "radius") can only be used for limit tables, not for tally tables. The frequent updates needed for maintaining tally tables mean that RADIUS is not well-suited to handle tally table storage.

The mod_quotatab_radius module supports the "radius" string for the source-type parameter of the QuotaLimitTable configuration directive. To configure these quota attributes, use the RadiusQuotaInfo configuration directive.

An example proftpd.conf configuration might look like:

  <IfModule mod_quotatab.c>
    <IfModule mod_quotatab_radius.c>
      # Use a RADIUS-based limit table
      QuotaLimitTable radius:

    # Use a file-based tally table
    QuotaTallyTable file:/usr/local/proftpd/ftpquota.tallytab

    # See the RadiusQuotaInfo description for more details
    RadiusQuotaInfo false soft 3.0 2.0 1.0 7 8 9
