What are you tring to do?

NTLM is usually remote (to an AD or Samba domain controller).

Over the wire normally SMB from Samba on the FreeRADIUS server.

If you install FreeRADIUS on the remote server then you could
proxy the request instead.

I'm sure there are other "ingenious" ways of getting the auth data
over, if you wanted to do something weird. But it's probably not
worth it.
