I dialed into my USR NetServer/16 and I have two RadiusNT servers
running. The primary runs 1.16.49 and the secondary is 1.16.60. I
tried to observe the messages under -x15 and the following was observed:

(a) Using 1.16.49 (with userlist on text file) as the primary and
1.16.60 (with userlist on MS Access) as the secondary, the UserID cannot
be validated and a dialog box pops out of Win 95 asking for a correct
password (as if that the password is wrong). There was absolutely no
message on -x15.

(b) When I changed 1.16.60 (with userlist on MS Access) as the primary
and 1.16.49 (with userlist on text file), authentication worked.
