  You should check that the server is reading clients from SQL.  See the
"readclients" configuration in the SQL module.

  Also, run th eserver in debugging mode as suggested in the FAQ, "man"
page, web pages, and daily on this list.  It will SHOW the list of
clients it's reading from SQL.  If it doesn't... it's not reading
clients from SQL.

  Which isn't the debug output.  PLEASE use "radiusd -X" for debugging.
 Doing anything else is wasting your time, and ours.
