When a machine tried to connect to the switch, in the debug mode, "radiusd -X", there is no message. There are no packets from the capture on the radius server when : tcpdump -vnni ens160 src "port 1812 or port 1813" tcpdump -vnni ens160 src "host b.b.b.b or host c.c.c.c"

  Then the problem is the switch.  It's not sending packets.  So no amount of poking FreeRADIUS will change anything.

  It's not.

  I mean, this isn't difficult.  The switch is supposed to send packets for MAC auth.  But the switch does NOT send packets for MAC auth.  So... the switch is broken.

  The switch.
