  I'm just wondering why it's necessary to quote a page I wrote back to me.  The quote wasn't asking a question, it was pretty much saying "but the page says it should work!".  Which is more argumentative than asking for help.

  That's also what the debug output said: no password was returned from LDAP.

  While the debug output looks complex and overwhelming, you can ignore 99% of it most of the time.  In most cases, look for "error" or "warning".

  If password authentication doesn't work, look for "password" in the debug output.  If you're using LDAP, look for the word "ldap".

  For the debug output you posted, it didn't even include "ldap".  Which means it wasn't even talking to the LDAP server.

  The process here is very very simple:

* is FreeRADIUS connecting to LDAP?

* is the LDAP module returning a password?

  Those questions are answered by reading the debug output.
