Hi all,

I'm trying to configure the server to use LDAP for authentication
And am finding the documentation to be less than straightforward.

We don't use openldap or eDirectory - which is what the docs are
Derived from. The information for FreeRADIUS and LDAP seems to 
suggest that I need to provide access to the LDAP server's
password to the service account that the FreeRADIUS Server

What I need to understand is how to integrate FreeRADIUS with
an LDAP Server without exposing the (crypted) password hashes.
Any pointers on what I need to do for that?

I'd be happy to provide updated documentation once I have
gotten it working. I'd appreciate any insights.
