  See the list archives.  You have told the server to use LDAP for
authentication, and the server received an EAP request.  LDAP servers
don't do EAP.

  No, you're not.  You edited it to break it.

  Note: no EAP.

  You sent the server an EAP message, but you previously told the
server to NOT do EAP.  What do you expect will happen?

  Use the default configuration files that come with 1.1.1.  Change
ONLY enough to configure the LDAP module.  It WILL work.
