The freeradius has permission to read the password. But passwords are hashed. Can freeradius read hashed password

  What part of that message is unclear?

  FreeRADIUS asked LDAP for the password, and LDAP returned "no".  Either the password doesn't exist, or FreeRADIUS doesn't have permission to read the password.

  Fix that.
