  Because it doesn't receive a User-Password attribute.

  Nope.  It never sent a CHAP-Password request.

  Fix PPTP to send User-Password or CHAP-Password.

  We don't nee to see that. 

  PLEASE follow the instructions in the FAQ: post "radiusd -X'.  We don't need to see any configuration files.

  And don't post that.  We already have it.  It's not helpful.

  What does help is reading the debug output.  If you had compared the two packets, you would see that PPTP doesn't send User-Password, or CHAP-Password.  And from the "radiusd -X" output, the server is then unable to authenticate the user... because there's no password.

  Fix PPTP.  No amount of poking FreeRADIUS will solve the problem.
