hi and thanks for your reply
>From the zone director side i am using 802.1x Eap with WPA (in the Wlan section) and the dynamic vlan is enabled. The AP and the zonedirector are connected with the an Alied Telesis core switch and i am allowing all the vlans and the native. The only i can think is a authentication issue for example the zone director is using eap but maybe i need to change something to the freeradius to allow eap. 
Also on the ruckus ZoneDirector the AAA server is configured correctly and when i trying to test the username and password i am receiving a success message.

I'm more of an RuckusWireless specialist than an freeRADIUS, but I'll try to help.

The ZD has a posibility of PAP or CHAP. Which Fw are you using?

The ZD and APs usualy work that if you have a trunk you also need a native (untagged network) for them to communicate. You can also use a management VLAN to manage all the devices. And it is also possible to use DHCP Option 43 for dicovery and such.

Hello to all,
I have a problem with the freeradius and the Zonedirector. I am using MySql tables to store the radrequest and radreply also the Nas tables. If i connect a cat5 cable to the core switch i am getting an IP from the correct Vlan. If i use the zone director i can't authenticate and get the correct ip. I read somewhere that Ruckus Zonedirector is using chap and freeradius pap and chap but i am not sure if that's the issue. The zonedirector and the Access points are connected with trunk ports. I am wondering if someone faced the same problem and give me some ideas. 

p.s attached file have the logs from the freeradius
