View Full Version : [SOLVED] freeradius "can't bind to socket"

August 18th, 2010, 10:56 AM
Latest error while trying to get freeradius working:

"Failed binding to /var/run/radiusd/radiusd.sock"

The debug output quotes the following configuration that does not exist:

listen {
type = "control"
listen {
socket = "/var/run/radiusd/radiusd.sock"

Per-socket clients are not enabled.
This just suddenly appeared. The server only had some SSL/cert-related issues before. Where is this configured? How do I fix this?

I'm compiling freeradius to get PEAP (EAP-TLS) support.
One barrier after another!

This one was easy.

There was no /var/run/radiusd directory on my machine, so I created one. It's strange that freeradius wouldn't do that itself.

The new error occurred because I solved the SSL-related one and the app was ready to actually run. Progress!
