Thanks Alan.

 Its a security camera is the user doing 802.1x auth connected to a switch
radius client. The switch connects to the RADIUS server based on the radius
server configuration on it. The server shared password is same on both the
switch and the RADIUS server its trying to connect to.  The rad_users file

 ash-4.3# vi /usr/local/synoradius/rad_users

# DEFAULT Ldap-Group == "bbbb", Auth-Type := Reject

# asd at testing   Auth-Type := Reject

# DEFAULT        Group == "disabled", Auth-Type := Reject

XXXX            Cleartext-Password := "XXXXXXX"

Thanks for your help.
