Backslash issue during AD authetication

I'd like to autheticate cisco vpn clients against the freeradius and AD


Prompt for the vpn client should be domainame\username.

In my smb.conf is as the delimiter:

winbind separator = \\ ( because backslash is special character, I had
to use twice )


This command works:

/usr/bin/ntlm_auth --request-nt-key --username=domainame\\username

NT_STATUS_OK: Success (0x0)


When i test through radtest it doesn't work : neither

radtest domainame\\username password  localhost 0 testing123 ,

or radtest domainame\\\username password  localhost 0 testing123,

or radtest domainame\username password  localhost 0 testing123


However, when i tried to autheticate through vpn cisco client , the
string domainame\\username will pass.

How can I force freradius to authenticate through domainame\username
