Freeradius server configuration:

The configuration for the status server is automatically created in the sites-available directory.
By default, server is enabled and can be queried from every client.
FreeRADIUS will only respond to status-server messages, if the status-server virtual server has been enabled.

To do this, create a link from the sites-enabled directory to the status file in the sites-available directory:
* cd sites-enabled
* ln -s ../sites-available/status status

and restart/reload your FREERADIUS server.
