Support FQDN and IPv6 addresses for RADIUS servers in accel-ppp-backed protocols
Open, WishlistPublicFEATURE REQUEST


Right now SSTP, PPPoE, and other protocols backed by accel-ppp only allow RADIUS server addresses to be IPv4:

[email protected]# set vpn sstp authentication radius server 
Possible completions:
 > <x.x.x.x>            RADIUS server IPv4 address

That's a serious limitation for companies that use IPv6 or want to add flexibility and redundancy by using domain names instead. We need to test if accel-ppp can work with them and relax the restriction. Official docs only mention IPv4 so far, which is where the restriction comes from.

accel-ppp doesn't support FQDN for RADIUS
