yes...but if you dont see ANYTHING in the 'radiusd -X' terminal window, then the

what does 'radiusd -X' show then ?

one last time....as you've already been informed. IF you are running FreeRADIUS in
full debug mode ie 'radiusd -X' you WILL see packets arrive...and if the shared secret
is incorrect then you will be told about it:
"WARNING: Unprintable characters in the password. Double-check the shared secret on the server and the NAS!"
you wont see ANYTHING in the logs (theres a silent reject) in standard mode - this is to protect
the server from DoS attack
