Betreff: FreeRadius Server not responding

I am new to the freeRadius Server area.

I have installed freeRADIUS (1.0.5) on linux machine, and installation
completed without reporting any problem. But when I am trying to test
it using radclient, it hangs. I tried to connect to the radius server
from a windows machine using NTRadPing.exe also. It is saying request
timed out. I ran the freeradius on debug mode and tried to connect it.
It is not showing any signs of being contacted.

This is what I get when trying to run the freeRAdius on debug mode.

Thanks in advance
