man radclient

at the bottom of that man page is a trivial example much 
like what you are testing with

attribute types help here. I would recommend reading some detailed
material on RADIUS. there are many online resources and FreeRADIUS
itself has plentiful documentation

I would guess because you arent dealing with, for example, a NAS
or checking the RADIUS status before denying/allowing actions.

ideally you run a full AAA piece of software or control box. without
a lot of external wrappers, radclient isnt the all-singing NAS tool
that I believe you think it is. the man page also explains what radclient
