  Read radiusd.conf.  Look for "listen".

  Why google for months?  Why not read the documentation and config
files that come with the server?

  If you even read the output of debug mode, it would TELL YOU which
ports it's using, and which file that configuration comes from.  Then...
 edit the config to change the ports.
