Yes, I have tested it.

There is a patch for FreeRADIUS to implement support for an old version
of the EAP-PSK draft. I'm not aware of any newer server side

This would indeed be the patch I mentioned above and the one I used to
successfully test EAP-PSK with wpa_supplicant.. I have to admit that
this was a long time ago, so something may have changed after this.

Please send debug log from both FreeRADIUS and wpa_supplicant and the
relevant parts of the configuration files for EAP-PSK.
