I just wanted to let everyone know that the 2.1.10 release fixed a
sporadic problem that we were having with PEAP-MSchapv2 and 802.1x.  We
had several PCs that would work only sometimes with freeradius, but they
would always work with Microsoft's IAS.  I would move a problem PC from
a switch authenticating with windows to another switch authenticating
through freeradius and back and the problem stayed with the freeradius

I was running 2.1.7 at the time.  I installed 2.1.10 to get to the
latest version before using this list for help, just to have it fix the
problem.  I suspect bug#17 was the issue.

If the issue hadn't been solved, we were preparing to go to two MS
server datacenter servers to do just the radius work (we have a *lot* of
switches) which I thought was a lot of overkill and wouldn't give us the
flexibility to do what we plan with the radius server in the future.
Now we don't need the MS servers now!

Thanks a bunch!!!!  You made me very happy!
