  Yes... I didn't say that wouldn't work.

  The text you posted showed it used ntlm.

  The text you posted showed that Radiator ran on Windows.  In which
case, it can bypass the AD replication protocols, and poke Windows
directly.  That's why it was less work to set up.  You didn't need Samba.

  If anyone is willing to sponsor FreeRADIUS on Windows, we can do the
same thing.  It's not hard, it just requires time and effort.
