Hi Julien,

Sorry I'm no expert here and I don't know how to fix your problem, but
I can see some things wrong with what you are doing.

Please try:

1) check your proxy config on server A (your earlier email showed that
it was probably proxying, and your later email showed it probably not

2) confirm your shared secret on server A matches server B (your
earlier email indicated that it was wrong)

3) if you still can't get it working, post the "radiusd -X" output
from server A as per
