Fairly new to the Linux/Unix community and it’s CLIs…

I have installed the freeradius software via terminal and not via the GUI.

sudo yum install freeradius

I have this version installed

[root at localhost /]# rpm -qa freeradius\*

I believe that I have installed it correctly since when I issued the 'radiusd -X’ command it is waiting for logs

#other commands omitted

listen {
  type = "auth"
  ipaddr =
  port = 18120
Listening on auth address * port 1812 as server default
Listening on acct address * port 1813 as server default
Listening on auth address port 18120 as server inner-tunnel
Opening new proxy socket 'proxy address * port 0'
Listening on proxy address * port 34199
Ready to process requests.

Now I opened another terminal window to edit the user file
[root at localhost /]# vi /etc/raddb/users
I have added this to the 1st line
testing Cleartext-Password := “password”
issued :wq!

typed this command afterwards:
[root at localhost /]# radtest testing password localhost 0 testing123
bash: radtest: command not found...
[root at localhost /]# 

Please help to determine how come I was not able to run radtest and what steps do I need to do in order to successfully install freeradius.
