Yes, I was comparing TACACS+ to RADIUS - my mistake.

Any recommendations on the most appropriate web front end for FreeRadius
when managing a Cisco network that is pointing at a FreeRadius AAA

By using the word "still" it implies that SecureACS can do this also,
but as 
far as I know, unless something has changed recently, cisco equipment
supports this feature with TACACS+ and not RADIUS.. Comparing a
TACACS+ server with FreeRADIUS is comparing apples and oranges...

FreeRADIUS is generally MUCH more powerfull than SecureACS in its RADIUS

functionality.. FreeRADIUS, doe not however support TACACS+ at present..
