There is no configuration for it. FreeRADIUS just uses either ntlm_auth 
or the libwbclient library, both from the Samba project. They connect to 
the privileged socket, not FreeRADIUS.

Actually, IIRC they will connect to winbind on the non-privileged 
socket, and that will tell them where to connect to for the privileged 
socket. But it's been a while since I worked on the Samba code so I may 
have forgotten the exact method.
