Calm down buddy.  I thought you were the author of and
had deep knowledge of the material and could point me to the right

You don't need to be so pedantic, this is completely unnecessary!!!  Even
if you think there is nothing wrong with the pam_radius_config and the
fault must be in OpenVPN, you could express it in a nicer way. This is just
a bad attitude.

If you don't want to help, simply ignore the message and maybe someone else
in the community can help.  Afterall we are supposed to be a community that
shares the same interest around Freeradius and the tools it integrates

Just some food for thought.
