Sigh. So you're not willing to follow the advice people give you. Why ask?

You have made a mistake:

Ready to process requests.
rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host port 47992, id=115, 
	User-Name = "user"
	User-Password = "passwd"
	NAS-IP-Address =
	NAS-Port = 0

...this is not an mschap request. Therefore:

++[mschap] returns noop
auth: No authenticate method (Auth-Type) configuration found for the 
request: Rejecting the user

...i.e. the mschap module ignores it, because it's not mschap, and no 
other module catches it, so it can't be handled/authenticated.

If you want to test mschap... send an mschap request.
