I have tried but I am unable to understand what is wrong since it's a 
new language for me.

I didnt disabled anything.. it's bulk freeradius settings with the only 
thing changed for sql and ok = return  in the pap auth case to prevent 
trying sql (like in eap settings).

I have tried to write username and password in the users which works for 
wifi EAP but not for NAS\LNS.

In what section I possibly did that?

I am looking for instructions but it seems like I missed something in 

What I have added is:
bob Cleartext-Password := "Hello"

and the client config to communicate the server

I dont have any rules I have added to the original ones.

I recompiled it from source and reinstalled it.

pap is on etc..

Found out my problem...

now I understood that it's like ACLS "first hits" in the users file.

there is no reject or whatever but it does have other "DEFAULT" things 
and since they exist they comes first before the username I inserted.
at least That is what I understood after trying and it's working now fine.

the next step SQL.
