2.0-RC1 FreeRADIUS does not start properly
After upgrading to
vs. 2.0-RC1 (i386) built on Tue Mar 22 05:44:21 EDT 2011
I found that FreeRADIUS does not start properly. "Status:Service"s reports that the service is running, but access requests are not answered. Issuing "radtest …" from a console shows that radiusd does not want to reply, so I guess the problem is not related to the GUI interface.
Using "killall -9 radiusd" with subsequent restarting of the service solves the problem until the next reboot.
Since I am using pfSense for a couple of days only and I did not test FreeRADIUS before I don't know whether the problem also existed in earlier versions.
I have this problem too since beta5.
Edit file "/usr/local/etc/rc.d/radiusd.sh"
radiusd -s &
radiusd -s &
I modified the script as regis_f suggested, but I still see that behavior where freeRadius won't respond to requests after a reboot until it is killed and restarted manually.

I can't kill it from the web interface, I have to SSH in and Kill -9 <pid>. Killall radiusd from the console doesn't work either, so perhaps that's why regis_f's workaround isn't working for me.
Edit: I also noticed that "top" reports radiusd as running, but as soon as the first client tries to authenticate, CPU useage for radiusd spikes to 100%.</pid>
