okay. simple NAS to RADIUS server configuration with no proxying.

no. its using RADIUS.  you mean the authentication type you want clients to use is EAP.

the auth failed because your LDAP stuff isnt right.  use eg eapol_test on the RADIUS
server directly (localhost connection) to test/validate your backend authentication
and then start sending queries from a NAS - the full debug will then show you further
errors if things dont work when you involve the incorrect shared secret.
