Beginner need help

I'm brand new to FreeRadius and just installed server 2.2.5.

I have followed the wiki instruction (basic Configuration section) to do the simple test.  The only thing I added is to add
Testing Cleartext-Password := "password"
in the /raddb/users

Here is the debug information I had when I run
Radtesting testing password localhost 0 testing123

rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host port 32775, id=195, length=77
        User-Name = "testing"
        User-Password = "password"
        NAS-IP-Address =
        NAS-Port = 10
        Message-Authenticator = 0x024f3a845461e5597651150741f365fd

Could anybody help to me to explain why it was rejected? (it looks like a no "known good" password issue but I don't know why)

Great thanks,
