Alternative to MS IAS

Good Afternoon All

I have had issues over the last year with using MS IAS for my 802.1x wireless authentication. Seems to be a Windows issue from what I have read. My question is anyone using 802.1x with another radius server other then IAS? I need to do machine and user authentication for my users.

Thanks

You could, of course use Freeradius. The machine authentication issue, however is a problem with Active Directory, and NOT the MS IAS server itself, unfortunately.

Ed,
What type of issues are you having with machine authentication? This normally works well for me with MS IAS.
