Did you look at your timeouts on the MAX? Some people have
one second auth timeouts for RADIUS and it causes the above to
happen. I'd be intersted to see the debug from RadiusNT while the
above is happening to see if its ACKing the request and what ITS
response times are. I know of several sites running about 10
MAX 4000s between a coupld RadiusNT servers without a problem.
You also need to have a decent SQL Server to handle the load
as well (Nice big Alpha box).
