I think I have a problem with Ldap reading the password correctly. If  
i have read correctly, it needs a clear text password....

I shall comment this line out, and try it out today

I have been working on configuring the server for a little bit now. I  
tried following several different online manuals before I consulted  
the group.

The radius server would tell me Access-Accept, but then my remote  
device would not let me login. The current remote device is a hp pro- 
curve 5412.

Will try this today, thank you very much for the informative advice.
