The windows 7 client

The conversation between the windows client and freeradius is encrypted
using the certificate you've installed on the radius server.  It looks like
your windows client is configured to check that the certificate the radius
server is using was issued by someone it trusts.  It's a self signed cert,
so windows doesn't trust it.

To make this work, you either need to tell the windows client not to check
the validity of the certificate that the radius server is using (bad idea!)
or put a copy of the CA which signed the certificate used by the radius
server onto the client and tell windows to trust it.

Does that make sense?
