Hello clifford!

You can download radiusd from the following ftp site;

ftp://ftp.livingston.com/pub/le/radius/

Specifically, check out the files;

ftp://ftp.livingston.com/pub/le/radius/radius.install
ftp://ftp.livingston.com/pub/le/radius/radius21.txt
ftp://ftp.livingston.com/pub/le/radius/radius21.tar.Z
ftp://ftp.livingston.com/pub/le/radius/radius21pam.tar.gz

The radius.install file covers pretty much everything you need to know. There are not any really any special things that you need to do for it to support cisco routers, it pretty much follows the rfc on radius so it's almost plug and play.

You might also want to check out Cistron-radius .. some people swear by it;

http://www.miquels.cistron.nl/radius/

1.6.4 is the current version, make sure you get this one as the older ones are buggy.

Check out the Tacacs FAQ at;

http://www.de.easynet.net/tacacs-faq/tacacs-faq.html

Especialy section 32 which talks about where to get a tacacs/radius server/deamon.

I'll go ahead and post this as an answer, because I believe it answers your question completely. If you have any difficulty finding the tools or you run into another problem, please post it and I'll see what I can do to help.
