802.1x and LDAP

I should have mentioned the pages I have already tried to follow.


With each of these I still have the problem where the Access-Request  
packet doesn't contain a User-Password attribute. I am guessing that  
there is something very fundamental that I am not understanding..  
like "there isn't supposed to be a User-Password attribute coming  
from the AP" but if that's the case then I really don't understand  
how we authenticate against the LDAP directory without a password.

I have tried a bunch of different "how-to's" and haven't had any  
success.. if someone could say they were certain that one of them  
worked that in itself would be a great deal of help.

I guess I should also mention that I have searched the list for  
"rlm_ldap: Attribute "User-Password" is required for authentication."  
and some other permutations of that string but didn't find anything  
that seemed especially conclusive or applicable.. The problem is that  
I'm not sure I would know if I saw it.

Again my apologies for trying to get up to speed in a couple of  
hours.. and many thanks for attempting to help me find a solution.
