SSL Problem???

Thanks for the response Alan,
My clients are WinXP SP2 boxes. I have several hundred of these which
had been working fine for the last 6 months...until my server blew up.
In fact I had more problems getting this setup to work with SP1 and made
it a policy for everyone to put SP2 on before I would configure wireless
for them.

Any other thoughts/workarounds?

In the statement "Odds are they're XP SP2 boxes, where MS broke EAP"
what exactly is broken.  Will XP SP2 not work with PEAP?

  No, because it returns success.  SSL is looking for a client
certificate, and PEAP doesn't need one.  SSL is then "helpful", and
prints out error messages.

  The rest of your debug log shows that the client just stops talking
to the server.  Odds are they're XP SP2 boxes, where MS broke EAP.
