  What data is going out?  What is coming back?  It's all LDAP magic.  I can't really help with no information.

  And try using the command-line "ldapsearch" tool.  That may have better debugging for LDAP connections.  The mods-available/ldap file has detailed instructions on how to use the FreeRADIUS configuration items as part of the "ldapsearch" command-line options.

  If ldapsearch doesn't work, then there's no reason to do tests with FreeRADIUS.  Get ldapsearch working.  Then once that works, transfer the configuration to the mods-available/ldap file

  The problems with LDAP are typically things like incorrect account name/password, bad client certificate, missing CA cert, etc.  But if the only error message is "can't connect", then it's impossible to know what's the real cause of the error.
