The fact that your debug is showing nothing coming in, means you aren't 
hitting the server.  How are you using radclient?  Are you telling it to 
hit localhost or your external IP or from one box to another's external 

Can you show an example of the radclient command line arguments you passed 
in addition to the debug you posted?
