  Why are you putting the configuration into /etc/freeradius/3.0?

  You've previously said that you installed it from a package.  That can't be true, because the packages just create /etc/freeradius, without the "3.0" portion.

  You're going out of your way to break the default configuration.  You're wasting your time and ours.

  You should:

a) follow the standard methods to install the server

b) use the standard location for configuration files

c) read (and follow) the documentation

d) read (and follow)

  You are not doing any of that.

  People here are trying to help you, and you are trying *very* hard to do everything wrong, and to make it as difficult as possible for people to help you.

  If you want the problem fixed, you need to address the above issues.
