correct. FreeBSD 7.0 i386 cistron 1.6.8
to FreebSD 8.2 amd64 freeradius 2.1.12

and cistron doesn't run on the 64-bit OS.

Ah. I had my users file in raddb
NOT in raddb/modules

So I moved it to modules,

and a debug start nags:
    /raddb/modules/users[50]: Expecting section start brace '{' after "DEFAULT Auth-Type"

The default users file does not have -any- open or closing curly brackets.
what am I missing? Thanks!
