  it's best to test these things with "radclient".  That way you test the RADIUS / AD / Yubikey portion separately from the web site.

  TBH, most web server integration with RADIUS is pretty poor.

  Which module?

  That has nothing to do with FreeRADIUS.  We don't ship a web server, so I have no idea how to fix anything here.

  Which were server are you using?

  Whatever web server it is, you need to consult its documentation for how to configure RADIUS authentication.

  Once FreeRADIUS gets a packet, we can help you.  Until then, it's all web server magic that we know very little about.
