Doesn't meant to criticise Freeradius. Jus want to know is there a way to
get this working or am I banging my head for nothing.

So, If we have Cleartext-passwords or NT-passwords available for users in
our LDAP-server should it work then, or is there still something to
configure on Freeradius side?
