The problem is that your secret in Emerald Administrator, Config Radius,
Servers for the NAS is NOT set the same as the secret
confgiured on the NAS for this RADIUS server. Go back and change them
both to be the same, and it will work. Remember, tbat in EITHER ODBC
mode or BOTH mode, RadiusNT gets ALL information (except both mode
it does read in the users file) from the ODBC DATBASE ONLY. Therefore
you could have a working text mode, and not both mode, simply because
your secret is incorrect. Triple verify it and you'll probably find a
small spelling error.
