The default config file /etc/nxlog.cof has nxlog-ce running as the user nxlog with group nxlog. That user likely does not have access(permissions) to the file locations you are trying to read.

User    nxlog
Group    nxlog

    (NXLog)

    What about the permissions on /var/log/freeradius ? The user needs to be able to see and get inside of that directory as well (+x)

    In this case, NXLog cannot access the directory. You either have to change the rights from freerad:freerad to freerad:nxlog, or give read and execution bit (755 instead of current 750) to everyone, or nxlog user has to belong to the freerad group so that nxlog can access the directory.
