OK, so you need to make sure that your access point / wireless
controllers are configured correctly and have access to your
RADIUS server.

You have a number of clients added in clients.conf - have you
added the actual client (AP) that you are testing from?

Is there a firewall in the way or iptables on the server?

Start by running tcpdump on the server to make sure that the
packets are actually reaching the RADIUS server. If they aren't,
and there are no firewalls, then make sure your AP/wireless system
is configured correctly.
