i have edited that file, and played with everything i can think of, or
can find to try getting this working.  hence my question here.

for some reason the radiusReplyItem specified as an attribute of the
groupOfNames is not being returned to the radius instance:

[ldap] looking for reply items in directory...

the output should be:

[ldap] looking for reply items in directory...
  [ldap] extracted attribute Cisco-AVPair from generic item Cisco-AVPair
= "shell:priv-lvl=15"

i dont know what i should be changing to have the correct query done
from the radius side, so that ldap responds with what it already is
configured to respond with.
