I need to Configure my FreeRadius to authenticate  NT users in a 
determinate NT Group that has a "blank character" in  the name. 
My NT Group name is "COPEL\Acesso Remoto".

When I execute the "ntlm_auth" program in the command line:  it works. The 
command line is below:

[root at FreeRADIUS /usr/local/etc/raddb]# ntlm_auth 
--require-membership-of='COPEL\Acesso Remoto' --request-nt-key 
--domain=COPEL --username=radius --password=radius
NT_STATUS_OK: Success (0x0)
[root at FreeRADIUS /usr/local/etc/raddb]#

When I configure the "ntlm_auth" program in the radiusd.conf, my 
FreeRadius show the followings messages:
auth: type "win_domain"
  Processing the authenticate section of radiusd.conf
modcall: entering group authenticate for request 0
radius_xlat:  '--username=radius'
radius_xlat:  '--password=radius'

Nothing to do.  Sleeping until we see a request.

My FreeRadius don´t get to find the NT group. It sounds like problem when 
FreeRadius find the "blank character" in the name of group. 
My environment is: FreeBSD 6.2 + Samba 3.0.24 + freeradius 1.1.6 

Any Idea ?
