My freeradius server is up and running and then I tried to execute the test with a following command:
radtest testing password localhost 0 testing123
But I am getting error:radclient:: Unknown attribute "User-Name" requires a hex string, not "testing"radclient: Nothing to send.
Please help to resolve the same.

there are various client testing tools with the main freeradius server package - also eapol_test from the 

wpa_supplicant package is very useful!

-f the config file - theres one supplied...should be in your /etc directory now. then you feed it a list of VSA/TLV values.

not as friendly as eg eapol_test or radclient
