From what I can tell this should be one of the most simplest tasks using freereadius but have as of yet have been successful in doing so.  The setup could not be much simpler, there is a user in the users file and a client in the client configuration file.  The request hits the server but is being rejected and from the debug output I am unable to determine why.  I have reviewed most of the postings on the list serve and read just about all of the documents on the wiki and other sites and everything, unless I am missing something, is configured as documented.

  Why?  Version 2 is end of life.  There are version 3 packages available in Debian, and it's trivial to build your own packages.  See the Wiki:

  Version 3 has a LOT of new features, and much better debug messages than v2.
