Thank you for your assistance in this, I do appreciate it. While the
strings you provided did not work for me, they did give me a good place to
start. I finally got it working with the following strings:
These strings are apparently included with the default installation of WUG
(except they expect a %03D).
Unfortunately, I had inherited the job and the tool, and did not have that
information availiable to me until I installed it on my workstation to play
with. All is good now, and I'm happy. Read on for complaints :)
Griping about IEA:
You have mentioned the FAQ twice now (and I blieve another person mentioned
it as well), yet when I view the FAQ (2 clicks off your main page):
I see 11 questions, none of which pertain to What's Up Gold. Perhaps IEA's
web site is out of date, or perhaps I'm just not looking in the right place.
I searched www.iea-software.com for 'WhatsUp Gold' (and a few variations)
and found 1 document:
This had a FAQ entry:
Can I use WhatsUp to monitor the status of RadiusNT running as a
WhatsUp Gold can monitor your RADIUS servers and tell you about an
Instructions are included with it on how to monitor a RADIUS server.
This is not a very helpful FAQ entry.
All FAQ's really should be kept within reasonable proximity to each other.
I've seen 2, both are different. Apparently there is a third one that is
different from the two I managed to find. How many different FAQs for
RadiusNT are there?
Going back to Ipswitch:
I searched Ipswitch's website for a clue, but only got 1 reference to Imail
when I searched for 'Radius'. The WUG documentation is not very good at all
in this regard, I was only able to find a non-functional example after
searching through the help file included with WUG.
Anyways, thanks again for your help. I do have it working at this time, and
