OK, well firstly, add a port (:1812) to the server name in /etc/raddb/server.
This will remove the 'getservbyname' debug messages which are non-information.

Try radtest or radclient (part of freeradius) from your CentOS server and
see if you can talk to the server.  You seem to have a network problem,
not a pam_radius problem.
