Here you go:

auth "radius" {
	hosts: "*"
	auth: "radius -f /usr/local/news/etc/radius.conf"
	require_ssl: true

access "radius_users" {
	users: "*"
	newsgroups: "*"
	newsmaster: "newsmaster at"
	localtime: true
	clienttimeout: "1800"

access "failed_users" {
	reject_with: "You need to be correctly authenticated to use this server from outside Hobbynet en HCCnet."
	users: "<FAIL>@*"
	newsmaster: "newsmaster at"
	localtime: true
