  Don't apologize, I'm cranky lots of times...

I wasn't judging anyone (MS or FR), just trying to understand what was going on, and if anyone here with more experience in the Windows arena would actually say something like "hey, you can get more info in the Windows client by looking or doing something else on that machine".

  It's Windows.  There are no good debug logs.

I'm not being disrespectful with the mechanic's profession or experience. I'm just pointing out something that is logically illogical.

  There's not much you can do to FreeRADIUS to make it *silently* do weird things.  If FR does something, it says what it does, and why.

  The overall point is one of trust.  I suggest people should trust FR, which is open and honest.  And me, who's open and a little more cranky.

  I suggest people don't trust MS.  It's an opaque product with opaque logs and opaque corporate tech support.
