I second David, AuthBy DUO integrates Duo’s 2FA more tightly with Radiator.

Pros for AuthBy DUO:

+ Same Log/AuthLog with a rest of an authentication chain (a special char ‘%1’ will contain a result reason or an error message from Duo’s API)
+ Works with all EAP methods

Pros for Duo’s Authentication Proxy:

+ Offers onboarding and Duo’s method selection GUI through Radius Reply-Message AVP for devices supporting that.

Radiator: the most portable, flexible and configurable RADIUS server
anywhere. SQL, proxy, DBM, files, LDAP, NIS+, password, NT, Emerald,
Platypus, Freeside, TACACS+, PAM, external, Active Directory, EAP, TLS,
DIAMETER etc. Full source on Unix, Windows, MacOSX, Solaris, VMS,
NetWare etc.
