What does Windows box have to do with this? Enable port based
authentication (802.1x) on the switch. Set it to use freeradius
integrated with AD. Switch will pass credentials to freeradius and it
will pass them to AD. From what you are saying (only EAPOL can pass
through the port) it is more-or-less set that way.
