  The shared secret doesn't match.  Both client and server have to have the same shared secret.

  If the shared secret is the same, then it might be a bug in PostgresQL.  The issue from our end is that FreeRADIUS works with every other RADIUS client on the planet.

  So if it doesn't work with one particular client, then it's very likely that the client is wrong.
