I need some information as to offloading user authentication over RADIUS, (to Windows user authentication) from a PIX. Any suggestions?

Your question is too general. Is something specific you want to ask? For VPN? For AAA access through the firewall? For authentication to the firewall for administration?

This is accomplished easily with Windows RADIUS (IAS) and Cisco Secure ACS. IAS is "free" but won't allow for a lot of control There are numerous examples on Cisco's website.

A quick search with "vpn pix radius" turns up this link with several good articles for VPN on the Pix with external authentication:

For a lot of examples of AAA to the Pix in general and using ACS specifically, check out this link:
