> I have recently configured free radius. The users i created first time works well but when i added new users to the user file i got error while trying radtest for new users. Rauf Khan

Have you restarted the server or instructed it to re-read the configuration to pick up the new users? If not, try that... Files are read once. If you want dynamic support, use a database. :-)
