Hi Alan,

Although, i worked as the configuration on your website but free radius still not work. Beside  it, i also edited the users file in /etc/raddb with auth-type is ntlm_auth. Then I run radius with debugging mode and it showed: auth type is system and authentication process failed.
Could you please tell me how to configure the users file in /etc/raddb?
