Radius says client is unknown.

Also check if the distro had freeradius already installed. The start script in /etc/init.d, unless replaced, will call the preinstalled version - not the one you installed.

rpm -q freeradius (for rpm based distros).

Do "which radiusd" to see if the one in the path is the one you want to call. The path to radiusd.conf is part of the compile and a preinstalled version will usually look in /etc/raddb unless otherwide instructed.

Subject: RE: Radius says client is unknown.

:) thank you. how confusing it is: I have both radiusd.conf under /etc/raddb and under /usr/local/etc/raddb .. The correct one is that under /usr/.... I don't know why but when I type something wrong into the one under /etc/raddb; radiusd still returns error. May be I must remove everything and reinstall freeradius from the beginning. 

Then let me ask one more question;

Now I can send my user/password over my AP. but I receive access-reject and it says:
  rad_check_password:  Found Auth-Type Local
auth: type Local
auth: No User-Password or CHAP-Password attribute in the request
auth: Failed to validate the user.
Delaying request 0 for 1 seconds
Finished request 0

Can it be my certificate again? I edited eap.conf so that it includes 
default_eap_type = peap
peap {
    default_eap_type = mschapv2
and I uncommented the default certificate lines under tls{..}

Best regards,

(I've done this before)

Us the locate radiusd.conf and see all the instances.
