Yes, I successfully use external authentication with RT. I actually use an
external LDAP instead of a local file, but the behavior on RT's side
should be identical as this difference is at a lower layer.

Perhaps you submitted an abridged version of your configuration file, but
AuthName and AuthType are required directives.

How did you verify this variable's setting?
