Radtest to localhost OK but not to IP?



  • Hi all,

    Apologies to bring in the trouble but I've installed FreeRadius onto Pfsense. If you did a radtest to localhost, there will be an accepted response. But if you were to do a radtest to the IP that Pfsense is in (in this case 192.168.30.1), it does not work. Any ideas on this phenomena?

    Also apologies if this is in the wrong thread.

    Check the logs, most likely it's not matching a configured NAS/Client when you test by IP address. The source is likely not an IP Address you have configured as a NAS/Client.



  • Specifically, check the /etc/raddb/clients.conf file. There should be an entry with the client address of the radtest source address and shared secret, similar to the following:

    client 23.34.12.90 {
            secret          = shared-secret-pw
            shortname  = nas-name
            nastype      = other
    }
