Thanks ndk and alan I lll give it a fresh try to the testbed. I have
already deleted the DEFAULT entry from the users file and updated mschap as
indicated. I think what might be forcing NTLM_AUTH is an entry which i made
to the authorize section of default file after which ntlm_auth strated to
work for me

if(!control:Auth-Type) {
                update control {
                        Auth-Type = "ntlm_auth"
I ll try removing the same and then need to see how mschap thing will work.
Would appreciate if you may point me to a further howto on the same. I aim
to connect and eap client through radius without the use of certificates
for which MSCHAP seems to be an option.

I think I ll write a howto or add a wiki entry if I can make it work fine.
