You need to make sure the PM has a RADIUS server assigned and the secret
is the
same as Emerald Admin thinks. What I do is telnet to the PM and type:

set auth x.x.x.x
set account x.x.x.x
set secret yyyyyyyy
save all

Then stop RadiusNT and start it in foreground mode. Finally try a login
what RadiusNT does/receives/sends to the new PM.
