Yes, I restarted it several times. is the AP's address. I guess there is nothing wrong with the AP.

Just a moment ago, I noticed that I can't start radiusd daemon with 'service radiusd start' command. It gives the following error:

[root at moe raddb]# service radiusd start
Starting RADIUS server: Tue Feb 27 21:44:38 2007 : Info: Starting - reading configuration files ...
6490:error:0906D06C:PEM routines:PEM_read_bio:no start line:pem_lib.c:632:Expecting: CERTIFICATE

6490:error:140AD009:SSL routines:SSL_CTX_use_certificate_file:PEM lib:ssl_rsa.c:534:

But I can start it with 'radiusd -X'

Can the prooblem be related to that? By the way, I have signed a new certificate to be used in radius. But it seems okay.

Thanks for any help,

have you restarted FreeRADIUS after adding it to clients.conf?
