  It works if you follow the documentation.

  That's not how the "users" file works.  Please read the documentation to see how it works.

  That DEFAULT entry just checks if the LDAP-Group and Huntgroup-Name match.  It doesn't *do* anything if they match, or if they don't match.

  You should write your policies in "unlang".  It's clearer:

authorize {

	# check only the first packet of EAP, and all non-EAP
	if (!&EAP-Message || !State) {
		if ((Huntgroup-Name == "wireless") && (Ldap-Group != "admin-galaxies")) {

  It's *much* easier to write clear if / then / else statements, instead of relying on your assumption about how the "users" file works.
