Hello Dale,

services. I then tried to log in - still okay - then I shut down the ODBC
services. It appeared it was reading from the text file (I ran RadiusNT in
debug -x15 mode and it was looking at the users UNIX passwd files) but it is
still not authenticating them when the ODBC services are not running. Also,
radlogin won't accept any users in the users file either :(

I can't seem to figure out what's wrong ... in ODBC mode it works wonderfully.
But as soon as the ODBC database is shut down - it stops authenticating. Shall
I send you a small sample of the output from the -x15 debug (privately) ?
