no doubt, however it is interesting that many people come to a point
where they make such a setting, don't you find. If you could clarify why
that is and fix it you wouldn't have to shout in mailing lists.
I have just verified it is not necessary by commenting it out, thanks.
I think you're saying at
http://deployingradius.com/documents/configuration/auth_type.html that a
default auth-type is not necessary and should not be set. Is that so ?
In which case having
DEFAULT Auth-Type = System
in the users file in the FreeRADIUS tarball helps to get us off on the
wrong foot :-)
