That is really old, and no longer supported. You should look to

The standard daemon name for FreeRADIUS is 'radiusd'. On Debian
based systems (inc. Ubuntu) it's renamed to 'freeradius' instead.

On your system use 'freeradius' instead of 'radiusd'.

Cross-referencing their dictionary, in FreeRADIUS you need to use
the attributes ERX-Ingress-Policy-Name and ERX-Egress-Policy-Name.

It is in 2.1.12.

Not all RADIUS servers use the same format dictionary files. You
can't just drop theirs in place and expect it to work.

The debug output of 'freeradius -X' will tell you everything the
server is doing.
