I am looking to use FreeRadius with either Nginx or Squid to auth users access to my proxy server however i do not want users to have a username and password i want to setup my proxy server so that it only allows certain ip addresses .

Can anyone help me with how to setup freeradius with a proxy server so that it auths users depending on there ip instead off username and password with ideally nginx or if not possible with Squid .

Once i have done this i will then create a whmcs moduel so that users ip addresses are updated to the whitlist on my freeradius as soon as an account is created however i will need an option in whmcs so that a user can update his ip address himself if it changes so if anyone can give advice on this aswell i would be greatfull

Which distrib? What have you tried? – F. Hauri Jan 2 '13 at 12:31
If you are only checking source IP addresses, why do you need FreeRADIUS at all? – Michael Hampton Jan 2 '13 at 16:17
