No, all you have to do is to be able to read. With care and understanding.

Forget hungroups. That part is fine. Password attribute is the problem.
So you have re-read instructions in users file. Did you find
User-Password used in any of the examples? Or perhaps some other
password attribute? The one that debug suggests is missing?

For a single device NAS-IP-Address should be better (avoiding use of
huntgroups). For a groups of devices hungroups work well as long as the
(hunt)groups don't overlap.
