Running Freeradius 2.1.10 on CentOS 5.5 I have been taking a quick look
at the radmin 'hup' command. However, I am having a problem getting it
to work:

  radmin -e hup
  ERROR: You do not have write permission.  See "mode = rw"
  in /var/run/radiusd/radiusd.sock

However, the socket file shows:

  ls -l /var/run/radiusd/radiusd.sock
  srw-rw---- 1 radiusd radiusd 0 Sep 10
                   04:02 /var/run/radiusd/radiusd.sock

  ls -ld /var/run/radiusd
  drwxr-xr-x 2 radiusd radiusd 4096 Sep 10 04:02 /var/run/radiusd

If I run the radmin command as root or the radiusd user, I get the ERROR

Additionally in the radius log file I see (when the radmin command is

   Fri Sep 10 12:59:28 2010 : Info:  ... adding new socket command
   file /var/run/radiusd/radiusd.sock
   Fri Sep 10 12:59:28 2010 : Info:  ... closing socket command 
   file /var/run/radiusd/radiusd.sock

I'm not sure what the first message means as the file already exists,
and the second one says it is closing the socket, yet the socket file
still exists (unless it literally means it is closing the socket but
leaving the file there.)

Any suggestions as to what is going on here?
