  OK... that's what you said already, but sure.

  IP address and shared secret, usually.

  Really?  That is a horribly vague statement.  And it doesn't agree
with what you said earlier.

  You said previously you HAD changed something.  I asked you what you
had changed.  Your reply now is you think something needs to be changed.

  I'm trying to help you, and you're giving vague and inconsistent
answers.  This is not just annoying, you're making it impossible for me
to help you.

  There is likely no documentation on "HP and FR".  Because there
doesn't need to be.  HP documents how to configure the AP for RADIUS.
FreeRADIUS documents how to add a client.  That's it.  The vendor
doesn't matter.

  In any case, the problem is likely not with the AP.  The supplicant is
stopping the EAP conversation.  As I said before.  Fix the supplicant.
The web page in the debug output describes the common problems, and how
to fix them.
