I have Freeradius v.3 Server and WAccessPoint (hostapd), both on the same machine (localhost) Ubuntu Server 16.04.1 installed.

I tested my connection firstly without freeradius -> I can connect to WAP and use Internet through NAS and MASQUERADE.

When I want to start Authentication with Freeradius, I change WAP-PSK to WAP-EAP, add some lines for RADIUS-SERVER in hostapd.conf and start freeradius -X (in debug mode), but there are no logs, when I try to connect through AP.

Whether connection is successful or not, it should be logged and debugged by each connection to Freeradius, but I see nothing, what means, that my Client and Freeradius doesn't recognize each other. Here are my settings:

hostapd.conf:

...
own_ip_addr=127.0.0.1
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
rsn_pairwise=CCMP
wmm_enabled=1
wpa=2
channel=1
auth_algs=1
auth_server_addr=127.0.0.1
auth_server_port=1812
auth_server_shared_secret=secret 
...

/etc/freeradius/clients.conf

client localhost {
ipaddr=127.0.0.1
secret=secret
require_message_authenticator = yes
}

I've also tried to create a new client in client.conf with ipaddr of my WAP INTERFACE, but I doesn't work also.

UPDATE1:

freeradius -v:

FreeRADIUS Version 3.0.11, for host x86_64-pc-linux-gnu

netstat -alnp | grep 1812:

udp 0 0 0.0.0.0:1812 0.0.0.0:*
udp 0 0 127.0.0.1:25868 127.0.0.1:1812 ESTABLISHED 1191/hostapd

UPDATE2: server config file:

server {
listen {
    type = auth
    port = 1812
    ipaddr = *
}
authorize {
    preprocess
    eap {
            ok = return
    }
    expiration
    logintime
}
authenticate {
    eap
}
preacct {
    preprocess
    acct_unique
    suffix
    files
}
accounting {
    detail
    # unix
    radutmp
    # exec
    attr_filter.accounting_response
}
session {
    radutmp
}
post-auth {
    # exec
    Post-Auth-Type REJECT {
            attr_filter.access_reject
    }
}
pre-proxy {

}
post-proxy {
    eap
}

}

I recommend your localhost entry in your /etc/freeradius/clients.conf to be:

client localhost {
    ipaddr = 127.0.0.1
    secret      = secret
    require_message_authenticator = no
    nas_type     = other
}

nas_type usually is cisco, livingston or other.

CHECK ALSO your hostapd.conf: you should also set ieee8021x=1

As for require_message_authenticator it is more useful to send CoA/disconnect messages, and for it to be configured you need radius_das_require_message_authenticator=1 in hostapd.conf. I would do without it [for now].

To run freeradius -X for debugging, you also need to stop the freeradius daemon, as from your netstat command, we can see 1812 is listening, and as such the service is running; debugging it assumes you are booting it anew in a single thread daemon.

Freeradius will boot upon until "Listening ...Ready to process requests". The real fun begins here, that everything after that is for debugging the transactions authenticating the Wifi clients. At any time, you can leave with ^C, and if you want to get the service up, you can launch the service again.

It should be noted that the password/secret in clients.conf should be the same used for debugging commands, or in hostpad.conf. Otherwise freeradius will reject any packets with other secret.

As for the debugging commands we used to debug FreeRadius requests, for the benefit of others:

echo "Message-Authenticator = 0x00,FreeRADIUS-Statistics-Type = 31" | radclient localhost:18121 status adminsecret

This one checks the status, but you have to have the status vhost active.

and:

echo "User-Name=test,User-Password=mypass,Framed-Protocol=PPP " | /usr/local/bin/radclient localhost:1812 auth secret

As for the future, after you get a little more confortable with Freeradius and if this setup is to be used in production, I would advise to get and compile the current 3.0.13 from github, as there are countless bug fixes.

  • odd. what happens when you run this: echo "Message-Authenticator = 0x00,FreeRADIUS-Statistics-Type = 31" | radclient localhost:18121 status adminsecret ? – Rui F Ribeiro Nov 1 '16 at 17:23

    something more: Shared secret is incorrect. Invalid Response Authenticator – user3467471 Nov 1 '16 at 17:38

    FreeRadius is working then, good news. I guess you substituted your password for secret in clients.conf. you are expected to substitute it back for your password in any related commands you do. – Rui F Ribeiro Nov 1 '16 at 17:40

    Freeradius is working...you must make sure the secret is also right in hostapd (same as clients.conf) – Rui F Ribeiro Nov 1 '16 at 17:44

    YES!!! Know, what I've changed? in hostapd.conf, as you said: it was ieee8021x set on 0, i've changed it to 1 (IEEE 802.1X Authorization). Now it works!I can see output from Freeradius and can check certificate of Freeradius by my client! Could you please edit your answer in this thread adding this line ieee8021x=1, then I can vote it as Right Answer! – user3467471 Nov 1 '16 at 18:24
