  BTW, tcpdump can sometimes bypass the FW by listening on the "raw"

  If the server says it's listening on a port, it's listening on a port.

  If it says it's not receiving packets, it's not receiving packets.

  Something in between the network && FreeRADIUS is stopping the
packets.  Find out what, and fix it.  But it isn't a FreeRADIUS issue.
