Well, from this wiki:  "start the server in debugging mode: radiusd -X”
which is what I did.

And: “If you get stuck, ask for help on the freeradius-users mailing list. Include a description of what you are trying to do, and the entire debugging output, especially output showing the server receiving and processing test packets.”

Maybe I understand things wrong, but the “especially” statement is kind of saying “not the whole process of starting up the server” . 
So I posted only my output showing the server receiving and processing test packets. At least, I think I did that. 
But for Alan’s response I think start up is the part he’s missing? 

Anyway… I have an idea where I should be looking at: only using LDAP for authenticate and using the files part for authorization. I’m diving into the docs etc now.
