  Yes and no.  See "man users" for details.

  "==" is comparing.  Since there's no Cleartext-Password in the
request, you can't use "==".  Also, in CHAP, MS-CHAP, and EAP, there's
no User-Password either, so you can't use "User-Password == ..."

  The solution is to use "Cleartext-Password := ..."  That says
"remember that the known good password is ...".

  The server then figures out how to use that known good password to
authenticate users.

  See "man rlm_pap".  It's pointed to from the README and elsewhere.
