External Systems do NOT integrate into RadiusNT. They integrate
into the DB either directly, or using EmerAuth. In order ot do what
you want above, you have to kludge a lot together using a protocol
(RADIUS) that was not designed to do it.

What apps (external systems) are you trying to integrate with Emerald?
