The Macs seem to complete EAP but no actual traffic gets sent or received?

In this case see that you have this:


In the AuthBy where you defined the certificates for EAP.

Which Radiator version are you running? The above settings defaults to 1
in < 4.9 and was changed to 0 in version 4.9 because the trouble Macs
and IOS devices were having with version defaulting to 1.

This has usually been the problem with Macs. Otherwise they work fine
with Radiator.
