Merit / RadiusNT

As requested, I have done a bit of digging into the source code
for Merit Radius to attempt to discover what is causing it to fail
authentication when passing certain Radius Attributes.
I found out that Merit has released a new server called their
"AAA" server, which is esentially Merit Version 2.4.23C. I sloughed this
down, compiled it, ported it to RedHat and set it up.

Guess what? Proxying works 100% fine in this version. No additional
changes are neccessary to get it working! I'm now succesfully
authenticating via the RadiusNT server and "user" off of
the original Linux box.

This, now, allows us to migrate our user base slowly over to the new
system, at our leisure, without having to worry about mass hysteria.
