I'm new to configuring these. I set up FreeRADIUS for starters, but now I'm interested in installing the ssh mod (which I have downloaded already). From this line in the documentation—"The ExtremeXOS RADIUS client implementation allows authentication for Telnet or console access to the switch."—that SSH is not supported by the RADIUS client, since it was not explicitly mentioned. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks. (from transient1)

Yes... You can use SSH and still have the switch authenticate to either Radius or TACACS+. (from Bill_Stritzinger)
