Sorry about that,

Here is the full content of the file.

# cat pam_radius_auth.conf

#  pam_radius_auth configuration file.  Copy to: /etc/raddb/server
#  For proper security, this file SHOULD have permissions 0600,
#  that is readable by root, and NO ONE else.  If anyone other than
#  root can read this file, then they can spoof responses from the server!
#  There are 3 fields per line in this file.  There may be multiple
#  lines.  Blank lines or lines beginning with '#' are treated as
#  comments, and are ignored.  The fields are:
#  server[:port] secret [timeout]
#  the port name or number is optional.  The default port name is
#  "radius", and is looked up from /etc/services The timeout field is
#  optional.  The default timeout is 3 seconds.
#  If multiple RADIUS server lines exist, they are tried in order.  The
#  first server to return success or failure causes the module to return
#  success or failure.  Only if a server fails to response is it skipped,
#  and the next server in turn is used.
#  The timeout field controls how many seconds the module waits before
#  deciding that the server has failed to respond.

# server[:port] shared_secret      timeout (s)
#      secret             1
IP Address <XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX>  Secret_Key            3
# having localhost in your radius configuration is a Good Thing.
# See the INSTALL file for pam.conf hints.

  Either you've edited it so much as to be useless, or you're using
that file as-is.  Either way, I have no idea what the ACTUAL contents
of the file is, and therefore I have no way to help you.

  If you don't know how to fix the problem on your own, any editing of
the configuration files you do before posting them here is guaranteed
to make those files useless.
