No remote authentication

Again, I am not very good with networking, but I assume there's no active firewall on my server after running those 2 commands:

ubuntu:~$ sudo iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination

ubuntu:~$ sudo ufw status
Status: inactive

Am I correct?

Thanks everyone for trying to help by the way. I just joined the mailing list and am happy to see it so active.

Check if you have the iptables process running. If you do, you have a firewall.

Stop the service and see if things start working. If they do, your firewall was blocking the traffic and you will need to set up rules for that.

I am not an expert in networking, but I assume this is the command you are talking about:

ubuntu:/etc/freeradius$ sudo netstat -anpu

Active Internet connections (servers and established)

Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address           Foreign Address         State       PID/Program name
