  The message isn't perfect, but it's clear:

  The private key in the "server.pem" file is encrypted with an unsupported cipher.

  OpenSSL supports many ciphers, but not every possible one.

  Where did you get this key from?  What tools created it?  It's clearly not created by the tools that come with FreeRADIUS.

  Use the built-in tools.  They work.
