Using Cistron RADIUS since April 1998. Never with Lucent gear, but I've got
a mix of Cisco, Jetstream, Patton and Portslave (Linux) NASes. It's a
*very* stable product and has features not found in other (commercial)
products. Never seen any problems related to Lucent on the mailing list so
I guess should work out of the box.

FreeRADIUS is still beta. I've played with it but it's probably not yet
ripe for a production environment. OTOH Cistron is stable and has never let
me down from the beginning. Support on the mailing list is excellent,
something you'll likely miss with a commercial product. Be sure to d/l the
latest version (1.6.6).
