I'm using eduroam-like authentication with SQL backend (Cisco WLC, 802.1X with PEAP and MSCHAPv2). There is no forwarding realms etc, just only one radius server running with minimal changes in the default configuration files.

You point me to right direction - however it was changed not enough :-(

It was side-effect of unnecessary proxiing the request to itself.

Yes! I read many of your replies here past few days and wished you reply 
back to save me this last night :-)

The default configuration is prepared for failover setup - in my own 
realm section there was "auth_pool = my_auth_failover" which pointed to 
localhost defined few lines above and I decided to not touch it. I was 
wrong here, because I missed the point that this means pxoxiing the 
request too. So I commented out "auth_pool = my_auth_failover" and it 
works now.

I think that in the default configuration, this should be commented out 
by default, because who needs pool should enable it by own hand and 
fight consequences.

Thank you again for your work! (now happy) Milan
