This application is very powerful and often used if you have cli connection. Be default accel-ppp listen TCP port 2000 for input/output with accel-cmd. However telnet has same functions, but accel-cmd is more comfortable, allow send command without enter in to another environment. Detail about cli you may read at [cli] .Let’s revise accel-cmd possible commands.

  • accel-cmd show stat - one of more important command, allow display accel-ppp daemon statistics and information about connections types and something counters such as RADIUS auth, acct summary and lost queries. Detail below:


radius CoA

Example, terminate session by username: echo User-Name=username | radclient -x disconnect testing123.
