Sorry for my confusion but as I understand it, my radius client is 
asking for the wrong attribute, since the  "User-password" is used for 
every other application (mail accounts, wireless connections etc), and I 
am sure that it is already configured.

I must apologize for my lack of knowledge about freeradius, I didn't 
imagine that I would have any problems with this part of my project, I 
haven't spent much time reading about freeradius (yet :-) ).
