Shared key mismatch

I run it in debug mode, have tried radtest to send some request to me to 
localhost - but it still says "Secret key mismatch" and I have no idea where
to look when I want to debug what is FreeRADIUS comparing so I can have 
better idea what might be wrong. Would core dump help me ?

Run FreeRADIUS in debugging mode. READ the output. Be sure that the "client"
entry is what you expect.

If you're having issues with PacketFence, ask them how their software works.
