Dear Heikki,
Thanks for your support and guidance.
I have modified my radius.cfg as advised in your following email , but 
still Access-Request results as No-Reply. Please note that I have used 
the same EAP certificates from the (goodies->certificates) folder .

I tried the following radpwtst :

 1. radpwtst -s -secret xxxxx -trace 4 -auth_port 1812
 2. radpwtst -s -secret xxxxx -trace 4 -auth_port 1812
    -user mikem -password fred
 3. radpwtst -s -secret xxxxx -trace 4 -auth_port 1812
    -user User -password clientPass

Please advise the specific 'user and password' format to be defined in 
the users file to the tested for authentication using radpwtst for our 
radius.cfg . Please also advise the recommended radpwtst to be performed 
as the above mentioned is still providing No-Reply to the Access-Request.

There is network connectivity between our radiator and Netgear AP 
(ping).  Kindly check my following configuration and advise on how to 


AcctPort 1813
AuthPort 1812

LogDir        /var/log/radius
DbDir        /etc/radiator
DictionaryFile /etc/radiator/dictionary

Please see goodies/eap_peap.cfg for PEAP example. PEAP is one of the
protocols WPA/WPA2 Enterprise uses.

You can configure <AuthLog ...>, for example, AuthLog FILE to log
authentication success and failure events. See goodies/authlog.cfg for
an example.

The Radiator logfile is useful for debugging and monitoring for errors,
but AuthLog logs just authentication events.
