Certificate validation checkbox - windows 7 wired

Hi all,

I'm getting an odd problem where even when my clients are configured not to validate the server certificate (test environment at the mo) on their wired connections they are failing to authenticate on one freeradius server but getting access-accept on another.

Debug output shows the familiar:

WARNING: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WARNING: !! EAP session for state 0xbec39c4bbac58529 did not finish!
WARNING: !! Please read http://wiki.freeradius.org/Certificate_Compatibility
WARNING: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I accept that it's very likely I've messed something up with install of the secondary server, and am planning to wipe it and start again tomorrow and THEN introduce the production certificates, but I'm confused as to why this certificate compatibility issue would even be mentioned in the debug if my client is set to validate any server.

The odd thing is that my wireless clients are authenticating fine through this server, also set to not validate the server.

Can anybody shed any light please?
