Sorry as I am not an expert in radius but if I do not set "Auth-Type = LDAP" 
how do I ensure that the authentication goes thru ldap. All the users have 
their passwords stored in ldap and therefore I hope to utilise the ldap to 
do the authentication. Is there a solution for this? Does anyone have a 
detailed guide in setting up radius with ldap and peap? Appreciate if 
someone could help me. Tks.
