Services running as the system can not access the network. Services
running as a user can
not access the local display. My bet is the first for your problem.
You may also want
to use a UNC, rather than a drive letter like \\server\radius

But thats apples to oranges. When running in the foreground, it runs as
a user who
IS allowed to access the network, etc. Configure the service to start
as the user
you are logeed in as and see if it changes things.
