We use PacketFence here on the Harvard Core Network.  As it was developed
by local Security engineers, I can say first hand that it will continue
to evolve and be supported by the community.  We have an installation
supporting well over 6000 clients and it's working flawlessly.

Still looking. I am on the fence (excuse the pun) and can go with either
one at the moment. Packetfence seems to have acquired a large following,
and netreg seems to not be in active development any longer.

Currently we're using Cisco's Clean Access for dorms/wireless.  I worked
with netreg but had some technical issues and was running low on time so
went to the Perfigo product.  That was about three years ago.  I've also
looked at Bradford but not recently.

Having said that, I keep wanting to return to netreg, and haven't heard
of
packetfence, so maybe it's time to relook at those.  How do you like
them?

I am wondering what other people are using. In particular I am wondering
about the use of open source products. I am currently looking at netreg
1.5 and Packetfence.

Any comments/suggestions/experiences are appreciated.
