I enabled that virtual server by linking it into sites-enabled.

I then added a single line:


in the "server coa" recv-coa section immediately before the "ok" line.

adding just "rest" stopped the server from starting.

I then send the server a CoA using radclient.

I see the server receiving it (as per the debug output below), but no mention of "rest.authenticate".

  Read the *entire* debug log.

  FreeRADIUS doesn't magically ignore virtual servers.  If it's not using a virtual server, it's because of a local configuration issue.

  The default CoA server in raddb/sites-available/coa works when it's enabled.

  So... what did you do?
