webauth with freeradius and edirectory


i've configured webauth on a 5308xl switch. It successfully attempts to authenticate to the freeradius server, but the freeradius server give the following:Auth: Login incorrect (rlm_chap: Clear text password not available): [testuser/]

Is there a way to get the webauth to not use CHAP? Is there any other workaround? I'm using an edirectory backend.

There is no way around this. Contact
Procurve and ask them to make webauth
work with standard active directory
or standard radius. I did. They submitted
a Customer Enhancement Request for me.
No results so far.

If others ask for the same thing, maybe
it will be fixed sooner. Requiring reversibly
encrypted passwords makes webauth a non
starter for us.
