I think that the easiest way is using EAP-TTLS if you use encrypted
password into OpenLDAP, you should use PAP. The problem is that
Windows has not native PAP support, so you should  use something like
securew2. The other option is that the Ivan Kalikmention it (something
that I asked many times :)  )
