>Here's the clients.conf. Yes I'm using NETKEY. I've tried your
suggestions but I'm still getting the same error messages.

Your config is alright. The problem is somewhere else. I'm out of ideas
here... Maybe you should seek for help with the pppd guys at their
forum. Here is the code in pppd radius plugin that reports that error,
but I can't figure out what leads to it:

  243 	length = sizeof (salocal);
  244 	sin = (struct sockaddr_in *) & salocal;
  245 	memset ((char *) sin, '\0', (size_t) length);
  246 	sin->sin_family = AF_INET;
  247 	sin->sin_addr.s_addr = htonl(INADDR_ANY);
  248 	sin->sin_port = htons ((unsigned short) 0);
  249 	if (bind (sockfd, (struct sockaddr *) sin, length) < 0 ||
  250 		   getsockname (sockfd, (struct sockaddr *) sin,
&length) < 0)
  251 	{
  252 		close (sockfd);
  253 		memset (secret, '\0', sizeof (secret));
  254 		error("rc_send_server: bind: %s: %m", server_name);
  255 		return (ERROR_RC);
  256 	}

As a last resort, is selinux disabled? Is pppd running as root? When and
if you find na answer, let me know. I came across sume guys with the
same error around, and I'm sure we could help them out. :-)
