FreeRADIUS contains a wealth of options to define how requests are forwarded. These options are defined in the file /etc/raddb/proxy.conf. For a single eduroam SP, these may seem overkill, but the required definitions for that purpose are rather static. Assuming you have two upstream servers to forward requests to, the following configuration will set these up - you only need to change the IP addresses and shared secrets in home_server stanzas. The realm NULL will reject authentication requests missing an @ sign, for example Windows always first tries its domain\hostname to authenticate when connecting the first time to eduroam. This authentication would otherwise be sent upstream to the realm "~.+$", which causes delays and is unneeded.
