    Hello people,

    I am using freeradius-1.0.1-3.RHEL4.3 and 
freeradius-mysql-1.0.1-3.RHEL4.3 on a CentOS 4.4 server but I am sutcked 
into a problem. I have made my FreeRadius works great using MySQL but I 
could not make it uses Crypt-Password.

    Into radcheck table I have:

mysql> SELECT * FROM radcheck;
| id | UserName | Attribute      | op | Value                            |
|  1 | teste    | Crypt-Password | == | 42cbf4730aeac1d645324d4818104826 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

    The password was encrypted using PHP MD5 command and should be 8872. 
But when I use a radtest command the respose of my Radius is:

Sun Feb 18 17:23:56 2007 : Auth: Login incorrect: [teste/8872] (from 
client localhost port 1812)

    I made the same in debug mode and radius just not get the password. 
I think it is not testing the 8872 password to see if it matches de MD5 
crypt. I tryed with "42cbf4730aeac1d645324d4818104826" as a password and 
it returned OK for the request. How can I do this work? I need that into 
MySQL table I have a crypted password (for security reasons) and I need 
that my clients can put a simple text password.

    Can someone give me a hit?
