Apple announces FreeRADIUS in Mac OSX Leopard

Hi Nathan,

yes, the goal is to authenticate wireless users. I have already taken  
a look at Andreas' web page, but the information seems a bit outdated  
to me.

At this time I am wondering whether to go with darwinports'  
freeradius package or with one of the other two installers. Actually  
I can't figure out what this "experimental" opendirectory plugim is  
about and if its part of the regular FreeRADIUS source.

The final setup I want to achieve is to have three groups of  
Accesspoints, one for internal users, one for freelancers and one for  
guests. The access to these accesspoints should be controlled by  
three corresponding groups on our OpenDirectory server, without the  
need to have these clients manually added to the clients file. Okay,  
maintaining the clients file could be done with  a script as well.

Is this possible with FreeRADIUS?
