Alan, great job putting the new book together.

I have a configuration issue that I could use some direction to a solution.

I am using rlm_sql for user database lookup, and it works when the user is found, but how do I define a catch all for users not
found in the db so that the server knows to reject them...

<debug output>
Server rejecting request 2 due to failure to be told how to respond.
WARNING: You did not configure the server to accept, or reject the user.  Double-check Auth-Type.

I would assume to put a line in the users file, that sets Auth-Type := Reject would be the answer, but my attempt at doing so
matched all users.
