  Don't set Auth-Type.

  In v3, the server just figures it out.  So long as you're using a reasonably stock configuration.

  i.e. look at the uses of the "pap" module in raddb/sites-available/default.  There are comments which explain what it's doing, and why.

  It's best to start with the v3 config, and then gradually change it to match your old configuration.  Starting from scratch with an empty configuration is not recommended.
