Hi Experts,

I have just installed freeradius on Debian server :

root at brlb-WM-services2:/etc/freeradius/3.0# # lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Release:        10
Codename:       buster

install new FreeRadius on Debian:
#sudo apt-get install freeradius

root at brlb-WM-services2:/etc/freeradius/3.0# freeradius -v
radiusd: FreeRADIUS Version 3.0.17, for host i686-pc-linux-gnu, built on Apr 22 2019 at 21:23:36

And while trying to edit radius.client file under /etc/freeradius/3.0 with the BNG address and found that I am not able to use normal key-arrows to edit and even the display is not showing the full file. ...(see below)

Any idea ?

And how to start the radius .. as mentioned above use "radiusd -X"  , but seems this is not working as well ?

Also I ignored to install MySql and considered it is installed as part of " apt-get install freeradius" ?
