My ultimate goal is to set up a RADIUS server for only accounting purposes (storing CDR packets as flat files and then forwarding them to Splunk) but have run into a few problems following simple installation of the freeradius package.

I understand that this may have something to do with IPv6 compatibility, so I removed the “listen” sections listening for IPv6 addresses but this occurred in another error (Error #2) and I have struggled to find any documentation relating to this. I have also found little documentation on setting up and testing a FreeRADIUS server for accounting only purposes and was wondering if you could at all point me in the right direction?

  If you only want it to do accounting, delete the "listen" sections that accept other kinds of packets.

  Don't post images.  And don't post images which point to files on your local machine.

  It's not difficult to cut & paste text.  Please do that.
