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

Hi again List,
Thank very much Alan,
I am so sorry if I am a little bit bothering ... but all seems to be jumbled
in my head. So I have some questions:

   - is the cipher login/password which comes from CopSpot(or any captive
   portal) deciphered before ipcop sends it to freeradius-server? (It's a kind
   of question which can not be asked here but ... never know)
   - the authentication type set in ipcop is just "radius" (and its ip), so
   I don't understand why the packet contains CHAP?

according to,
centralizing the authentication in samba will work fine, but I want to do it
against ldap. I think, what's wrong here is that I added users by
smbldap-useradd, not simply ldapadd (which won't work actually, it says:
"invalid credentials") ...

   - So how can I force freeradius to use pap (to be able to authenticate it
   against ldap) even the passwd/login is tls ciphered (from chilispot)????I m
   really convinced that that's not possible, even senseless but I have to know
   why ...

Finally, once again, I really want to thank the list for your availability,
the freeradius dev. team, because this is a success for the open source
