Fair. Though the docker images are pretty small relatively speaking.

Could have sworn I mentioned that. Maybe I said it in the irc channel,
but yes, the problem was that User-Password was not available outside
the inner-tunnel. Turns out the django-freeradius project is meant for
use with captive-portals and not wpa2-eap (though by moving the REST
calls to the inner-tunnel apparently makes it usable outside of the
intended use).
(btw, is irc.freenode.net/#freeradius official?)

Yeah, up until I determined to move the REST call into the inner tunnel
the freeradius server was only in debug mode.
