I installed openvpn and freeradius from yum and I installed the radiusplugin_v2.1a_beta1.tar.gz but I am having connection issues with the error:

XML-RPC: ConnectionRefusedError: 10061: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it..

I added the following to the database(mysql)

mysql> INSERT INTO radcheck VALUES (1,'jpeterson','Password','==','netopia1');
mysql> INSERT INTO radreply VALUES (1,'jpeterson','Trapeze-VLAN-Name',':=','corp');
mysql> INSERT INTO radreply VALUES (2,'jpeterson','Session-Timeout',':=','300');

trying to use the user jpeterson and password netopia1

I've been looking at /var/log/messages and /var/log/radius/radius.log but I am not seeing much.

EDIT: I have had openvpn working when using PAM.


EDIT:

Now when I use my phone or the old vpn connection hat has the server.crt file I get this on the console:

[root@vpn ~]# Mon Jan  7 23:03:54 2013 RADIUS-PLUGIN: Got no response from radius server.
Mon Jan  7 23:03:54 2013 Error: RADIUS-PLUGIN: BACKGROUND  AUTH: Auth failed!.


[root@vpn ~]# Mon Jan  7 23:05:23 2013 RADIUS-PLUGIN: Got no response from radius server.
Mon Jan  7 23:05:23 2013 Error: RADIUS-PLUGIN: BACKGROUND  AUTH: Auth failed!.

After some research I found this but not sure what it means:

"Got no response from radius server" means that the plugin does not receive any packet from the RADIUS server.

Can you check that your RADIUS server responses to an ACCESS-REQUEST RADIUS packet with an ACCESS_REJECT packet, which includes a response message? Does the server response in the interval which is configured in the plugin configuration file?

And do I also need to have a cert file to login even if I use FreeRadius?
