NTRadPing is a useful tool for testing installations of your RADIUS servers. Through NTRadPing you can simulate authentication and accounting requests and send them to the RADIUS server making NTRadPing act as a NAS client.
Before you send the request to the server, you need to configure the server IP address, the RADIUS secret key stored in the server clients file, and a username.
All the other parameters are optional.
On accounting requests, the "Acct-Session-Id" attribute is also added automatically if you do not explicitly enter it in the request attribute list.
If you issue an accounting request, then the RADIUS attribute "Acct-Status-Type" is added automatically by NTRadPing depending on the type of accounting request you have chosen (start, stop or update).
In the lower left list box you can add as many RADIUS attributes as you like to your request. The list of available attributes and the relevant values in the two drop down boxes depend on the dictionary file RADDICT.DAT.
By checking the "CHAP" checkbox, you may force NTRadPing to issue authentication requests with a CHAP password instead of a default (PAP) password.
In the right list box you will get results about the RADIUS request, along with a complete dump of all the returned RADIUS attributes.
The parameters entered in the main window are preserved even after closing the application (they are stored in the registry).
