Terminate PEAP on freeradius then proxy MSCHAPv2 to NPS

The clients are employees of a fairly loose network of companies, each on
their own AD, some doesn't even have ad.

A frustrating mixture of Windows and OSX.

We maintain a central AD with all the user accounts in it but there are no
machines associated with that AD.

The self signed certificate works but people get prompted to accept it and
we were asked if it was possible for that to not happen.
The most likely users of this service would be the VIP types, it is
expected to "just work" so here I am.

Self signed or commercial makes no difference as the certificate is only
used for server authentication.
The only difference is users having to manually trust a cert or not.
Unless I am wrong.
