  That's nice.

  Did you try using the ldapsearch string I suggested?  Again:

ldapsearch -D ${identity} -w ${password} -h ${server}  -b 'CN=user,${base_dn}'

  Maybe you're using a version of FreeRADIUS which is many years old, and doesn't have the updated documentation I was talking about.  You can read here:

  Look for the text which begins:

	You can run the 'ldapsearch' command line tool 

  and READ IT.  Then, do what it says.

  None of that configuration will help debug the issue.  You don't need to post it to the list.

  That isn't relevant, either.

  That isn't the ldapsearch command I asked you to run.

  Or, follow the documentation from GitHub,  It's newer than the version you have.  It will work.
