OK... same as you did before. Run FreeRADIUS like

  radiusd -X

(or likely "freeradius -X" if it's Debian system). Then try and
authenticate (both a successful and failed auth is best).

The stop FreeRADIUS and send all the output.

Easiest is to do something like

  radiusd -X | tee debuglog

then when you Ctrl-C to quit the file "debuglog" will contain it

The key is to try and authenticate otherwise the debug output
doesn't show what's actually happening.

But before you send it best to read the debug output through
yourself. It will tell you exactly what the server is doing.
Compare successful and failed and you'll hopefully see what's
different and therefore what is going wrong.
