What would it take? (FreeRADIUS on 2.1)
I posted this in the 2.1 board already but got little other than "it needs a whole new package and there will probably be one in the future" - what would it, for someone who knows, realistically take to build a working FreeRADIUS or FreeRADIUS 2 package for the 2.1 snapshots? Is anyone else interested in making this happen? I'm trying to get WPA2-Enterprise with a few users setup on my unfiltered VLAN (one VLAN has SquidGuard, one doesn't. I'd like to use WPA2-Enterprise instead of PSK so users can be added and removed as they come and go… so I need a basic RADIUS server. Unfortunately, I need to use 2.1-snapshot because one of the NICs on the server doesn't work without FreeBSD 8.3+)
i can't answer for the developers but usually packages are built for stable release of pfSense, in this case. 2.0.1. Once 2.1 is officially release, package developers(most are not part of the core pfsense team) update their package for the new version of pfSense. I know its not what you want to heard but good things happen to people who wait :-)
The main reason for this: if you fix a package for a 2.1 and it doesn't work for 2.0.1; there will be a ton of unhappy IT personnel that use 2.0.1 in production.

Try freeradius2, it's under devel by Nachtfalke.
Here is the forum topic link that may help you installing the packages.
Thanks, I'd tried that package, but I hadn't seen the thread link, I posted in there. It'd be really great to get this working!
