eap-ttls failing

I have a Ruckus ZoneDirector 1025 with waps that I just installed. 
Testing out different EAP types I can use. I am using FreeRadius 2.1.3. 
I have eap-ttls and eap-peapv0 working perfectly (I am using windows to 
control the wireless card for peap and it works great). Was going to try 
eap-tls by assigning client certificate to the machine account so the 
computer account authenticates on the wireless and then the user can log 
into the domain. I did this and get errors. It kind-of looks to me that 
the Zone Director is not sending the correct eap message for eap-tls. 
Maybe someone could point me in the right direction. Also, something is 
putting host/ in front of the User-Name field. In the certificate, I 
have the common name as joshhiner not host/joshhiner. Wonder if the zone 
director is mangling eap? Also, the wireless card is a mini-pci broadcom 
in a compaq 6710b.

Thanks -Josh
