still the best - Steel Belted Radius

- It was purchased by Juniper Networks, so has been renamed - but always been the best.

I agree Steel Belted is the way to go.  

I don't know if you are looking for a replacement for your Cisco AAA server or a new installation read the Docs and make sure it will do what you want it to do.

I found that some things it does better and some things it doesn't do.  

Overall Steel Belted is my choice.

It depends on what you want to do.  Micrsoft IAS isn't the most full-featured RADIUS server in the world, but for many applications it gets the job done (and it's included in Windows 2000/2003).

For more advanced stuff like 802.1x port-based VLAN authentication, Steel Belted is probably the best.

Agree with jjoseph_x
IAS comes with all Windows 2k/2k3 servers and integrates very well with Active Directory and is very easy to set up.

Steel Belted really is the defacto 'standard' and much less expensive than Cisco's ACS

you guys are all right on IAS - the price is right and the product works great for a lot of stuff.  I use it for VPN client authentication at a few clients and never had an issue.

We do use IAS for Microsoft VPN, it works just fine; but it seems the IAS does not function for accounting purpose with Cisco ASA device, IAS does good authenticaton with Cisco ASA; does any one check the log file of the IAS? my start time and stop time are always same, therefore I can not get duration time for the user, it is the reason I am looking into other solution.

I'm able to use accounting with my IAS and my PIX just fine.
For the Cisco ASA did you use the "aaa accounting" command to enable the accounting?
