    Well, RADIUS and VPN are two different things, which are you interested in?

    That's right. Radius has nothing to do with the actual VPN other than providing a means for user authentication. I set up my previous company's VPN setup to use Active Directory as a basis for user authentication when someone connects in via a VPN client.

    If you want to do accounting through Radius, you'll need to set up a syslog server.

    I don't know how much I can help you with your project as I don't use many of the freeware software out there both at home and at work. With regards to FreeRadius, I use Microsoft's implementation of Radius which is IAS under Server 2003 or NPS under Server 2008. With regards to VPN software, all my VPN implementations for both home and work are all using network VPN appliances from Netgear to Cisco equipment. The way I have it set up is either there is an AD lookup for authentication or a Radius setup to do both authentication and accounting. The network appliance in this case Cisco, would connect up to a Windows server running either IAS or NPS. Since the Windows server already has logging capability, the events are logged under the event viewer.
