Need sample config file for EAP-MD5 authentication

I am new to FreeRADIUS and trying to set it up with HostAp and
xsupplicant.  I have gotten all three components compiled and running.
The HostAp and FreeRADIUS are running on Linux box whereas xsupplicant
is cross-compiled for an ARM processor and running on an embedded
machine but is on the network.


The FreeRADIUS and HostAP are talking to each other after when I had the
same secret set in clients.conf and wired.conf files in FreeRADIUS and
HostAP configuration files respectively.  I have xsupplicant trying to
authenticate itself and I see it talking to HostAP but since I don't
have it configured right, the FreeRADIUS rejects the authentication for
this client.


I am on a wired network so MD5 type authentication will suffice.  I just
cannot figure out how to configure the eap.conf file in FreeRADIUS, or
syntax where I can provide the user name and password for the client.
Can someone help me out with a sample file ? It is a very simple
configuration but I couldn't find it on Google search.


Thanks in advance,
