I have a RADIUS server setup running on Windows Server 2008 R2.  I am using Microsoft Network Policy for the RADIUS server.  I have Accounting enabled, saving the logs in IAS format.  Is there an application (preferably free) that can format and display the Accounting logs?  I have been opening the logs in Excel as Comma Delimited, but it's a hassle since Excel is not installed on the server, so another computer needs to be involved.

I have tried
advanced log viewer and bare tail. Found useful. You can download from the below link.

You could use Powershell to see the content i a Excel like gridview if thats enough for you. You can add all columns you want in the header.

Import-csv <path to logfile> -Header Ip,UserName,Date,Time,ServiceName,ClientComputer | Out-GridView

Thanks for the suggestions.  The two applications don't work.  BareTail displays the output as a block of text, same as opening in Notepad.  It doesn't handle comma delimited.  The Advanced Log Viewer doesn't have a paser pattern that works with these logs.

Powershell seems to be a good solution.  Once I expand the headers, it should give me just what I need.  Thanks.
