No. That is absolutely incorrect. You have not got that information from either the FreeRADIUS users or FreeRADIUS developers list.

I suspect you are attempting to purposely introduce confusion.

Well it is.

This is serious. The GPLv2 violation is secondary. It's quite plausible that the version being distributed on source forge may contain malicious code. It would be fairly trivial to modify the server to forward credentials to a remote site, whether they be from users, or the ones embedded in the configuration.

That's why it's so important from them to publish the actual code used to create the windows binaries, so it can be checked against the code from our repository.
