Ah, I'm awfully sorry for not correctly using the relevant terminology. I suppose most people could guess I was talking about WPA2 enterprise when I mentioned EAP-TLS for wireless authentication.

Ok the problem here is that it is not working (hence my post to this mailing-list). For it not being a Freeradius issue: I didn't expect it to be. In fact, my suspicion was openssl or the connecting Windows Vista client.

I'm posting to this list because I hope that other users of FreeRADIUS have experienced the same issue and might know of a way to solve it. Maybe there's others who use FreeRADIUS in the same scenario (EAP-TLS auth for ppp in a L2TP/IPSEC VPN).
