I checked out the table structure for each of those tables. The RadVendorID
and RadVendorType fields were present in 3 of the 4 tables. The RadValues
table was missing these fields. I opened up the database in Access 97 and
added those fields. I then saved the modified tables and started up the
radius server with "radius -x15". I then retried the authentication test with
"radlogin test test". I got the same authentication rejection that I was
getting previously. The debug output from radius still indicates the

test: PPP has no RADIUS default attributes.

test: PPP has no RADIUS default attributes.

For some reason it just won't read the default attributes for the "PPP"
account type. All of these settings are at their "out of the box" default
values. I would expect that the sample database that gets shipped with the
product would be valid, but at this point I cannot tell if the database is
wrong or if there is a bug in the software.
