WiFiDog does not use the radius protocol.  It uses a simple protocol
overlayed on top of HTTP/HTTPS for authentication and other services.

WiFiDog was not developed around the concept of for-pay hotspots, so it
does not offer that capability at this point.

However, it's code (both client-side and central-server) is available
under the GPL license, so feel free to download the server code (written
in PHP) and alter it to suite your needs.

If you choose to do so, please review the terms of the GPL license,
since it requires you release your modifications under the GPL license
as well.  Failure to do so would nullify all your rights to use WiFiDog.
