Freeradius: [pfsense-2.0.2] "no response from server" [RESOLVED]
Trying to get Freeradius going and can't seem to get past the simple localhost radtest check.
radiusd -X shows that the configured ports are up and listening. A firewall rule to log inbound connections on 1812 shows that the connections are being made too (from a NAS) but also fails after the prompt for name/pass.
Not sure how to proceed from here, but I know that I need to get things to the point that the radtest is working.
How can I diagnose this?
Are you sure that your configured the "shared secret" correct on your NAS and freeradius/clients? Try without special characters - just with a simple one like password123.
What do you mean with "fails after name/pass" ?
What is freeradius -X telling you when you try to authenticate ? Post the output here.
What NAS are you using ?
Did you configure a user in freeradius –> users ?
Yep…checked the shared secret about 10x. Even looked at the conf file in the GUI and the CLI, to verify. Very simple secret. No special chars.
I do get the same EXACT behavior though if I intentionally change the shared secret to something I know to be incorrect. So this has me wondering.
But like I said, looking clients.conf file, it shows the secret that I'm using as part of the radtest. ???
Can you post the complete output when starting freeradius with:
and then the complete output when trying to authenticate with a username?
are you just trying with radtest on CLI or do you authenticate through your NAS ?
If you try with radtest from CLI try with client IP 127.0.0.1 (you need to add this client on clients.conf)
The 127.0.0.1 user entry did the trick! Before this, I had even created an entry for the specific IP address of the pfsense box, which didn't work.
