an infamous LDAP-FreeRadius question

Well, I think my TLS session is getting created. From what I can tell, it's
the password part of it that's hurting me. I've attached output of my radius
server debugging and my eap.conf file as well in hopes that someone could
tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Any helpful comments are appreaciated.

You might try not using an ldaps connection if your LDAP server allows it. 
Comment out all the TLS in the ldap section. This TLS/SSL connection to your

LDAP server is a separate issue from 802.1x. That's just between the RADIUS 
server and LDAP. Once you've got everything else going, go back and work
the ldaps. 

The main thing is to change only one thing at a time. Then you'll know
what broke it and what didn't. I believe you had LDAP working before, didn't
