PAP what password encryption is used?

It seems it is SHA. I found in the output that freeradius couldn't determine
the Auth-Type so rejected the user:

auth: No authenticate method (Auth-Type) configuration found for the
request: Rejecting the user

I've forced PAP by setting it in the users file for the realm:

DEFAULT Realm == "", Autz-Type := bla, Auth-Type := PAP

It works:
  rad_check_password:  Found Auth-Type PAP
auth: type "PAP"
  Processing the authenticate section of radiusd.conf
modcall: entering group PAP for request 0
rlm_pap: login attempt with password testing
rlm_pap: Using SHA1 encryption.
rlm_pap: Normalizing SHA-Password from hex encoding
rlm_pap: User authenticated successfully

Great, now some good config practicing

Thanks for all help :P
