Hi there,

I'm attempting to log in chillispot with freeradius but when I send the
couple username / password with a cleartext password in user-password to
freeradius through chillispot, radiusd respond :

rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host port 36710, id=47,
    ChilliSpot-Version = "1.0.12"
    User-Name = "testuser"
    User-Password = "\177\326=\343\017\021e\247B4ޣ\202<6\001"
    NAS-IP-Address =
    Service-Type = Login-User
    Framed-IP-Address =
    Calling-Station-Id = "00-13-CE-8C-0F-AF"
    Called-Station-Id = "00-09-6B-D8-9A-C6"
    NAS-Identifier = "nas01"
    Acct-Session-Id = "48a18af500000001"
    NAS-Port-Type = Wireless-802.11
    NAS-Port = 1
    WISPr-Location-ID = "isocc=,cc=,ac=,network=SYS_TECH,"
    WISPr-Location-Name = "HotSpot"
    WISPr-Logoff-URL = ""
    Message-Authenticator = 0x8bd17fcc4a6acc6cac5026615e4545b5
auth: type Local
auth: user supplied User-Password does NOT match local User-Password
auth: Failed to validate the user.
  WARNING: Unprintable characters in the password.       Double-check the
shared secret on the server and the NAS!
  Found Post-Auth-Type Reject

(the password is "plop")
but i want that freeradius can read the password without transform it. Is it
possible or do you think it could be chillispot that transform it ?
