Configuring accounting on Freeradius server

Thank you the answers. I see that my freeradius server is receiving
accounting request when I use "radclient" and it logs it as well.
As you said that the client is responsible for sending accounting requests
to the server, I am new to radius server and PAM, so not sure how this is
done (apart from using radclient)?
Pointers here would be appreciated.
