Thanks for the quick responses on the install problem I had. Now I still
have one question. What is the advantage of using Radius over the
typical username/password? I understand that Radius encrypts the
traffic between the server and the portmaster, but how does that equate
to increased authentication? I read the FAQ but I'm still a bit foggy.

Also will this work with token cards (SDI or CryptoCard)
