Helo there,

I'm relative new to freeradius, and i'm trying to configure a PPTP VPN on
pfSense, authenticating in a FreeRADIUS with LDAP module. But, I'm getting
the following error :

Found Auth-Type = LDAP
WARNING: Please update your configuration, and remove 'Auth-Type = Local'
WARNING: Use the PAP or CHAP modules instead.
No User-Password or CHAP-Password attribute in the request.
Cannot perform authentication.
Failed to authenticate the user.

The authorize process works fine, but the authentication not. I can't find
"Auth-Type = Local" as it says. This is my access request :

rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host port 2067, id=132,
NAS-Identifier = "yoda"
NAS-Port = 0
NAS-Port-Type = Virtual
Service-Type = Framed-User
Framed-Protocol = PPP
Calling-Station-Id = ""
User-Name = "fmathias"
MS-CHAP-Challenge = 0xbb1e68338ed8f5047a5224fc502acaf9
MS-CHAP2-Response =

I've tried many of google searches troubleshooting MS-CHAP problems and most
of them is saying me to get a Cleartext-Password entry on my database. But I
can't consider this an option, because the security of my accounts in LDAP
would be extremely compromised.

Can you help me?

Thanks in advance,
Fábio Rampazzo Mathias
