I edited sql.conf file but I didn't do anything to the dialup.conf file, why
should I have, more reading now!

did this had to read the radiusd.conf file to figure that one out.
so as of right now I used the schema.sql to set up a empty database and made
up some users in there in radcheck. I start my radius server in debugging
mode and mysql server is now being used to authenticate users. I did a
radtest with my users in mysql database and got an access accept message
which is good. I also used ntraping to test and that was successful. This
server right now is not in production, it is just for testing. Right now I
am trying where to go next. should I try using chap instead of pap? Now that
you asked if I edited the dialup.conf file I will do a littel reading.
