The FreeRADIUS LDAP code hasn't changed much in a long while, that 
should work fine.

You'd be better to paste the full debug output, as it says here:

There are a few different ways you can use LDAP. If you're e.g. using 
PEAP/MSCHAPv2 with AD then it just won't work, you have to use Samba.

If it's e.g. EAP-TTLS/PAP then you can auth with LDAP.

If you're using the former and want to check groups only then LDAP is fine.

Without the full debug, all we're doing is guessing about what's happening.

Alan's suggestions are all good - the password has to match, and it's 
obvious that it is with ldapsearch and not with FreeRADIUS.

The full debug will show *why* it's not matching.
