Excellent timing!  I was just wondering the same thing myself...

I have everything except WEP rekeying working with Steel Belted 
RADIUS 4.0/Enterprise.  Authentication is using TLS with certificates cut
from a Microsoft Enterprise CA.  Client is a Windows 2000 laptop using 
the MS 802.1x authentication client.

Accounting appears to work with it as well.  Starts & stops appear when

Command line is:
hostapd -SSSID -x -o192.168.0.1 -a192.168.0.2 -spwd \
-A192.168.0.2 -Epwd -t300 wlan0

Quick question tho:  If -E is not given, does the password for accounting 
default to the authentication password?

Great work!
