PAM RADIUS freezing when accounting does not configured on RADIUS server
Open, Requires assessmentPublicBUG


When we have a RADIUS server with a configured accounting port instead of 1813 or not configured at all, CLI always be freezing. pam_radius get accounting port from /etc/services.
Will be good to have the possibility to disable pam radius accounting to prevent this issue.
