Hi Arran,

Sorry for the previous question, but your reply said the problem was with my access controller and you recommended I replace it. I assumed you meant there is something wrong with it.

The NPS and FreeRadius are on the same network.

I find those sorts of statements/questions particularly irritating.

FreeRADIUS is running on a different machine to NPS, maybe a different network? There are many other variables that change, not just the RADIUS server.

Investigate the issue yourself. If you find something that points to the issue being with FreeRADIUS, post it to the list, we'll tell you if your suspicions were correct or not.
