I have an IIS box running in our DMZ and we want to try to create a single sign on experience for our users.  I want to use radius and I have it set up and the firewall ports are open, but IIS doesn't seem to be using radius.  All non-local users (server is not part of AD of course) are not authenticated.  I have searched here, other techie sites and google, but very little info on this.  There is a company called www.tcpdata.com that has an isapi filter that does this, but it seems that this should be available using MS SW.

The short answer: No. That's the only product available now that will do the job.

IIS doesnt have any scope for covering radius auth. Needless to say, you create your own implementation of a RADIUS client in ASP.net but this would require you know a lot about the inner workings of the RADIUS protocol and also lots of socket experience.

It looks like using the component from tcpdata might be the easiest/fastest(and therefore cheapest) method of doing it.

Of course, you have no connection with them whatsoever, right? ;-)

I've ordered their demo and will probably end up using it.  I'm surprised that their aren't more resources out there for this issue.  I know federation services offers this, and ADAM might work for our needs.  This has to be a common problem, so what do other sites use?

None at all.

I (thankfully) have never had to develop for RADIUS authentication... I stick to AD... But I've heard from several people who either write their own workarounds to communicate directly with the radius server, communicate with other software that can talk to the auth server or just use that component.

In the interests of simplicity and time, I'd go with the spending-money route.. If you've got the time to investigate, you could see about writing your own client.
