the first screenshot shows that you’re trying to restart the daemon while you’re a regular user, tobias, and not root. Try prefixing the command with sudo. Also try getting into the habit of using systemctl for daemon control instead of running scripts in /etc/init.d manually.

Generally the second screenshot shows that the daemon seems to be running (that’s what the Active: line indicates). If authentication doesn’t work, then it’s not because the daemon isn’t running.

Note that due to the upgrade to Freeradius 3 additional manual steps have to be taken after the upgrade:

  • The release notes state that you may have to re-add your clients.
  • Paths have changed. Before the upgrade the client configuration file was located at /etc/freeradius/clients.conf, but now it’s in sub-directory: /etc/freeradius/3.0/clients.conf

Kind regards,


Hi Mosu,

thank you very much. Filling the new clients.conf fixed the problem.

Kind Regards,
