  If cannot make the time to understand the problem and solution, you
won't be very successful in fixing it.

  Then it's not using the entry you configured.

  <sigh>  You're not posting the full debug log, as suggested in the

  You're probably also massively editing radiusd.conf.  STOP IT.

  Start with the default configuration files, and follow the FAQ to add
a test account in the "users" file.  Follow the FAQ to check that the
account works, via "radtest".

  Then, login from the VPN client using that test account.

  If it doesn't work, I will be shocked.

  Again, most of the problems you see are because you are editing the
configuration without understanding what you're doing.  The default
configuration is designed to work in the widest possible set of
circumstances, with minimum changes required to get ANYTHING to work.

  I feel like putting that in letters 10 feet high in the FAQ, README,
etc.  But somehow I think there will still be people who won't bother
reading them.
