  Why put asterisks around every line?

  1) Auth-Type belongs on the first line, "radiusd -X" will tell you that
  2) Setting Auth-Type = LDAP is probably wrong.

  Except the "Group" attribute is for Unix groups, not LDAP groups.

  Either your system *doesn't* work at all, or the "users" file
entries you included above are *not* what you're using.

  See doc/variables.txt.  It explains how to copy the contents of one
attribute to another attribute.
