  The default install of 2.1.8 enables the ones you need.

  (1) It's 1.1.3 and 2.1.8, not 1.1.13 and 2.1.18.  Details matter.

  (2) the *layout* has changed, but the contents have remained 90% or
more identical.

  (3) i.e. Your configuration from 1.1.3 would very likely work with
minor changes.

  (4) Don't use the config from 1.1.3.  Instead, do a DEFAULT INSTALL
of 2.1.8, and copy a piece of the configuration at a time.

  (5) see "man radiusd" in 2.1.8 for more instructions on how to go from
a default install to a final configuration.
