urgh. no need. just call the module in authenticate.

if you are goign off-piste you need to hack in a lot more eg

 authenticate {
	Auth-Type exec {

I doubt that works though - you cant just go freestyle and make up your own syntax

> Why did I need to fill exec into the authenticate section too? I just want to use radius to send the username & password to my script and whole checking process is made by the script.

because you are checking passwords and authenticating someone. so you use authenticate
