I **DID** do this....... !!

I have been using *NIX based machines long enough to understand how-to 
add things to flies and **follow** instructions...... - though I maybe 
junior in other ways and lack the experience of senior admins I **really 
AM** trying hard!

I will post back tomorrow with a breakdown of this file since I am not 
in front of the system now:

/etc/raddb/users - correct???

I entered **EXACTLY** what you suggested right at the top of the file 
before even the # 'out - commented information that resides at the top 
of that file.

There's no need to be so severe as the ban me!

As stated I am not trying to be difficult or ignore instructions here!!!!!

I have been using mailing lists for many years without issues such as 
this. Yes I am almost working blind with no internet or network 
connection on the server or switch at hand which does add a level of 

I am even willing to do a screen record from the **only** system I have 
that can connect to both that switch + server and our GUEST Wifi if it 
will prove what I am saying and hence show you that I **really**  am 
following instructions properly.

Outside of sincerely apologizing for the issues I am having I really 
don't know what else to do or say to make you understand that I am not 
ignoring things and/or doing things at will without regard for those who 
**ARE** trying to help!
