I use freeradius 1.1.7, and my client pc runs windows Vista.
I've set up a testuser with a clear-text password in the users file - which
works:-). I can connect using the testuser with WPA/WPA2, PEAP, TTLS without

But when I try to connect using the local unix users it dosnt work:-((, what
am I doing wrong?

This is what i got when running in debug -X mode, and trying with root:
