Yeah, the information in that one is, as you said, simple and "just enough".
However, it doesn't address either of the two questions I asked.

1) Is setting "Auth-Type = ntlm_auth" the correct way for doing what I want,
or have I mis-configured something so that FreeRadius could work out that it
needs to use ntlm_auth on its own?
2) How do I match a rule against AD Group membership?  This one was answered
in a previous reply, and I think I can work out the implementation details
from there, I just need to do some work and testing.

If anyone knows the answer to the first question, I'd appreciate it.
