ERROR: No authenticate method (Auth-Type) found for the request: Rejecting the user

People, I have working OK a Freeradius with AD Authentication and LDAP
Authorization. Everything is OK when I use my service to authenticate users
for the WiFi service.

But now I want to add a Cisco Firepower IPS authentication, and I fail. The
Cisco Firepower IPS has a Radius configuration interface where I fill out
all the basic necessary data: Radius IP and port, Secret and Default User

In the Freeradius server, I have edited
/etc/freeradius/sites-available/defaullt and inner-tunnel files, adding a
clause similar to the current ones, as follow (the unique condition is the
user belongs to IPS LDAP group):

if .....
elsif (LDAP-Group == "IPS") {
                        update reply {
                        Reply-Message = "Hello %{User-Name}: Access enabled
to Firepower"
else {

and the Freeradius debug output is this:

rlm_ldap::ldap_groupcmp: User found in group WiFi-Corp
  [ldap] ldap_release_conn: Release Id: 0
? Evaluating (LDAP-Group == "IPS") -> TRUE
++? elsif (LDAP-Group == "IPS") -> TRUE

adam: Access enabled to Firepower

++ ... skipping else for request 203: Preceding "if" was taken

Please can you help me???
