Well, the value you said something about was, at least...  ;-)  I can't
comment on most of the other stuff in MSDN regarding IAS plugins, since
I've never tried to write one.

Must have missed that.  Was that just for EAP-TLV, or the RADIUS AVPs in
general when using EAP for wireless?

Well, they *used* to have a development support option available.
Several years ago, I called it a few times from work, using up the small
number of free incidents that came with our license of VB6.

I don't know whether MSDN subscriptions include a support option or not.
It might be worth calling their developer line and at least asking.  If
it's not covered, then they're probably going to want to charge you the
standard $245/call fee.  :-(

This page looks like it might be helpful (under the "contact us" link):


That's supposed to be "specifically for developers using Microsoft
technology", according to the page I found it from:


Actually, that page also has a link to:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/support/default.mspx (TechNet support)

which says, under the "TechNet subscription" section:

If you have a TechNet subscription, that could help.
