the debug output is telling you exactly what is wrong....and because the User-Password
is encrypted using the shared secret, if it doesnt match, then test1 will become some 
string of junk

check your clients.conf file (or NAS table if done via SQL entries) for the shared
secret for the local host - you may find that the new install has default...but your older
box that you are interested had it changed.
