Hello guys,

i am a newby in installing and configuring an access point with a radius
I set up a free radius server (IP and i checked that is on.
I set up a wireless access point (D-LINK DLW3200 AP, IP with
wpa2-enterprise  authentication settings.
In the screen of DWL authentication setting i  set as radius server
and "radiussecret" as Radius Secret.
In freeradius configuration file clients.conf i added the following:

client {
   secret = radiussecret
   shortname = dlink
   nastype = other


and i switched on sql authorizing because i use freeradius-mysql in

I set up freeradius dialupadmin and it works right.

I added a test user to table radcheck ('test', 'testpwd', 'radiussecret')

I lauched the command:

radtest test testpwd 0 radiussecret and i got the following message:

radclient: no response from server for ID xx.

if i ping the devices from one to another they respond each other.

Is there anyone who can help me. I need to set the access point up
asap for my company.

thanks in advance for your help

best regards
