First version of PacketFence for Debian squeeze released
April 26, 2012

After all the wait PacketFence’s goodness is coming to Debian!

To install it, you simply have to add the Inverse repository under /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ by adding the file "packetfence.list" containing:

deb http://inverse.ca/downloads/PacketFence/debian squeeze squeeze

Then do:

sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keys.gnupg.net –recv-key 0x810273C4 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install packetfence

once apt-get finished to install all the packages, you must execute /usr/local/pf/installer.pl and follow the instructions.

Documentation about the installation and configuration of PacketFence is available from:

http://www.packetfence.org/documentation/

Be careful, if you use FreeRADIUS, the configuration directory under Debian is /etc/freeradius.
