Hostapd does not contact radius server

I have configured hostapd 2.5 (did not try other versions) to provide
However, when I run either another hostapd process as a radius server
on the AP, or run freeradius on another host that has a wired
connection to the AP,
the (radius client) hostapd does not contact the radius server.
I checked this with iptraf, and saw no packet from/to port 1812.
I tried to send something using netcat from the AP to port 1812 where the
freeradius server is listening, and actually got a response.
So I don't think this is a problem of some firewall.
Actually I didn't setup any firewall on port 181*, and the AP is connected
directly to the computer running freeradius with an ethernet cable.
Any hints are appreciated. Thanks in advance!
P.S. Configuration of hostapd:
auth_server_addr=192.168.123.3 # or 127.0.0.1 when running on the same machine
# -- End of hostapd.conf -- #
