The First is used to proxy unknown users to the "DEFAULT" domain. IE,
if they are not found locally, you can have it try another RADIUS
regardless of whether they used an @domain login or not.

Accounting echo echos back the attributes. You should never use it.

The Accounting records should be in the calls table. However, you
might not see them online. There is a RoamPorts update to make this

Although, I haven't tried it with 3.0 yet.

Are you using "proxyidentifier" for the registry name? I'll have to
double check the behavior on that.

What does RadGetUser return for that user?
