I checked the example, but it's not clear to me why it is so.
In my envirnoment I authenticate against an LDAP server, so according to
the ldap.attrmap file the LDAP attribute "userPassword" (which contain
the password in clear text form) is copied to the check-item
"User-Password". While no attribute seems copied as check-item
"Cleartext-Password". Still the mschap module is able to authenticate
Is it done "behind the curtain" by the ldap module ?
In may environment da LDAP server also is used by samba; so there're
also LM/NT password available (in fact, some users are not also samba
users but are authenticed via radius); but while googling about using
freeradius with LDAP that possibility wasn't mentioned, while I found an
howto that said to add to ldap.attrmap the line:
checkItem User-Password userPassword
