    RADIUS client device is the device that will communicate (authenticate users) with RADIUS server. In your case it is the VPN router or gateway's IP address. It has nothing in common with users's devices.

    I would use my firewall's IP Address? public or private IP address?

    Accepted Solution

    If the firewall is the VPN end point then use its LAN address (private). In other words: you must be able to ping your RADIUS server from the firewall.
    Firewall: LAN
                   WAN: (example)
    then you must configure your firewall to connect to RADIUS server and configure RADIUS client device on RADIUS server.
