FreeRadius Server Configuration and Integration with LDAP help required

Hi all,

I am doing the configuration of FreeRadius Server version 2.1.1 on FC8. I plan to connect WiFi access points to freeRadius for AAA as a part of my project. I downloaded the source code and built it using

make install

But, radtest gives access-reject for any username and password. Also, when running the radius daemon : radiusd i get the following error ::

/etc/raddb/users[74]: Parse error (check) for entry Auth-Type: expecting '='
Errors reading /etc/raddb/users
radiusd.conf[1171]: files: Module instantiation failed.
radiusd.conf[1970] Unknown module "files".
radiusd.conf[1905] Failed to parse authorize section.

Initially i was trying to integrate ldap with freeradius 1.1.7 in the first go. But, it also gave the failure to parse errors. So, i just shifted the version of freradius to 2.1.1.

Following is the code in the users file that i have added ::

#DEFAULT Auth-Type = System
# Fall-Through = 1

Auth-Type := ldap
Auth-Type := local, User-Password == mypasswd
Auth-Type := System

Service-Type = Login-User

"test" User-Password == "test"

User-Name = "abc" User-Password = "cba"

"swati" Cleartext-Password := "swati"
Reply-Message = "Hello, %{User-Name}..............."

Hope this much information is sufficient. Please do help me at the earliest.

Thanking you in anticipation.

Apparently you don't understand the rules. Posting in 2 forums is against the rules. Posting in SIX forums is just STUPID!

With all due respect sir, i guess that just reflects the urgency and utter importance of the issue and i would appreciate if you could just help me out with some experience instead of just posting comments like that which are offending.
