Hi Alan,

I figured out that I would need to add a test user in the users file, 
thanks for looking at it though.
We are still testing in the lab, we hope to use this to replace our 
existing Orps thats running radiator, so we are trying to configure a 
server that will use EAP-TTLS with a PAP inner that talks to a LDAP 
backend for ucl.ac.uk users and sends everything else to the NRPS,  I 
expect i'll be sending another post soon.
