Then I hope the vendor makes available that documentation. At the moment 
I'm looking for a Unified Threat Management device. The one I have on 
demo just now (SonicWall) I hope to integrate in radius, but the 
documentation seems unavailable before you buy.

That's why I was looking for info of freeradius. If I can ask the vendor 
: I need certain features implemented in this way, does your device have 
that, I can eliminate surprises after I buy an expensive product.

Bottom line, I need to ask the vendor : I need this and this feature, 
are those features supported by Freeradius ?
