falling back to local auth and not ads

OK, that entry in the users file was in as part of the prebuild package.  I will have to check why that is there with the guys that make the package.  For the moment I have commented it out so that it truly reflects the config on your website.

I have been through the steps again and found that final radtest shows an access-reject and the debug shows:
ERROR: No authenticate method (Auth-Type) found for the request: Rejecting the user
Failed to authenticate the user.

Now presumably this is because there is nothing in the users file (by putting the DEFAULT EAP-Message !* "", Auth-Type := Accept back the access-request is accepted).  The website says to delete the previous test entry, so now I am left with nothing in the users file.  Is this correct?

  If you follow the instructions on the web site, then it will work.

  The web site does NOT say to do this.  Do you understand what it does?
 It tries to bypass all authentication!

  Follow the web site.  Don't do *more* changes than the web site says.

  It *will* work.

  The web site contains DETAILED descriptions of what to configure, what to test, and what to do when the tests don't work.  It's clear you're
*not* following the web site.  If you were, you would be saying which step you tried, which ones worked, and which test failed.
