2 is an accept, and three is a reject. If you setup the WUPG user with
the ANY password, you should use a 2. Otherwise, you'll need to use
3 and get radlog entries.

I'll check on the links. I maintain a set of FAQS for RadiusNT and
Emerald at:

Checking the website, it looks like the faqs on there are the product
FAQs, not the technical FAQs. I'll see about getting some links
added or the two merged.

Well, three. There is the product faq (on the website), the technical
FAQ (from the manual, and updated in the above URL) and a set of
"How tos" (at the above URL).

The above string is directly from the WUPG help file, except the
response was changed from a 3 to 2 (reject to accept) and the name
of the user was changed from test to WUPG. AFAIK, the example in
the help file does work, but caused the radlogs entry ever check.

I do agree and have talked to IPswitch several times about getting
better documentation for WUPG and RADIUS. If they would just
fix the ambiguous % problem, I'd un-hide the radlogin pieve that
creates the strings for you.

Thats the ultimate goal that we are after here. :)
