as per message previously sent, 'eduroam' SSID must be all lowercase.
and thats a MUST.  SSID are case sensitive...if you have Eduroam then all visiting clients
will need to be reconfigured to use it.

check your ACS logs to find out why it went wrong - as thats the system that
decided that things werent right - FreeRADIUS is just a simple proxy in this
picture. I would assume that its something to do with the realm not being handled might need to strip or nostrip it (in proxy.conf) depending
on your ACS configuration and policy settings.

PS as per other response, signature seperator is '--' and please dont put legal
junk in your emails to public lists
