FreeRADIUS server: Error in testing user access!

                Dear all,


                I’ve installed and configured FreeRADIUS 3.0.12 on Ubuntu
16.04 LTS.


                In the file ‘/usr/local/etc/raddb/mods-available/eap’ I’ve

                                - “default_eap_type = peap” in the general
‘eap’ section, and 

                                - “default_eap_type = mschapv2” in the
‘peap’ section.


                After running the server with ‘radiusd –X’, I test it with
the default user ‘bob’ defined in ‘/usr/local/etc/raddb/users’:


                                radtest bob hello localhost 0 testing123


                Regretfully, the authentication fails, the debugger saying:


} # server

                I’ve tried ‘radtest’ with other auth methods (-t
pap/chap/mschap) but it always fails!



                What’s wrong? 

Can someone help me, please?



                Thanks in advance,
