@Arran: I think Miha is referring to http://wiki.freeradius.org/Radiusclient
It's hard not to think it as part of FreeRADIUS when the first line of
the wiki starts with "FreeRADIUS Client"

@Miha: last time I tried I couldn't get freeradius-client-1.1.6 to
work correctly either. It was a while ago though, so I don't remember
exactly what went wrong. However the (old) version that comes with
most distro (e.g Ubuntu Natty has radiusclient1-0.3.2-13) works
correctly, so I suggest you try using whatever your distro has first.
After that, if you have time, you can try revisit latest

Also, what do you need it for? The common use for radiusclient is to
provide radius auth functionality to pptp, in which case the old
version would probably be enough. If you simply want to do some tests
(e.g. send a packet, see how the server responds) it's easier to just
use radtest/radclient that comes with freeradius-server.
