Description of problem:

Hi I could not manage to get radiusclient to work. it seems it's a new
replacement of radclient.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

echo "User-Name = test" | radiusclient localhost:1812 acct testing123
localhost:1812: can't parse AV pair
-bash: echo: write error: Broken pipe

Actual results:

What is wrong with the above AV Pair ? 
Unfortunately i could not find any info about the usage of the the new radiusclient.

Expected results:

$ echo "User-Name = fnord" | radclient 12 s3cr3t
Sending request to server, port 1812.
radrecv: Packet from host code=2, id=140, length=54
    Reply-Message = "FreeRADIUS up 21 days, 02:05"

radiusclient is not a replacement for radclient.  It takes it's AV pairs on the
command line, not in the standard input.  It also needs a configuration file to
specify the hostname/secret.  Here's the source:
