Ok, no problem, I understand.

Finally when I go to the 'check server' page on the dialup admin page, what am I meant to see? The only thing I see is below

Server: radius:1812

(test user test)

If by "test user" you mean "you've created a user on db/users file, and want to test if the user is correctly setup (e.g.whether the password is correct)", then you can use radtest to localhost. By default is already setup as client NAS on clients.conf. Note that it doesn't really have anything to do with "cisco": the same user will be usable on any NAS that authenticates to the radius server.

If by "test user" you mean you want to check whether the cisco box is setup correctly, and whether you can login on that NAS, then you can't use radtest. You need to actually login on that NAS (e.g. using 802.1x wired/wireless, or whatever).
