Updated freeradius packages that add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
FreeRADIUS is a high-performance and highly configurable free Remote Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) server, designed to allow centralized authentication and authorization for a network.


Under certain conditions, the proxy server needs the ability to time out to the home server in less than a second. With this update, three new features addressing this requirement have been added:
The home server's "response_window" configuration option now accepts fractional values with down to microsecond precision and the minimum of one millisecond.
The "response_window" configuration option with the same precision is now also supported in client sections to enable lowering of the home server's response window for specific clients.
The "response_timeouts" configuration option is now supported in home server sections, allowing to specify the number of times when a request is permitted to miss the response window before the home server enters the defunct state.
Users of freeradius are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
