  Which indicates that you didn't tell the server what the *good*
password is for the user.  Why not?

  Read the FAQ.  It has instructions for configuring a sample user.
When you've done that, it *will* authenticate that user.

  Getting 802.1X to work requires a number of steps.  You've missed
some.  My guide goes through this in detail, and following it will
*always* work:
