Are you seeing the requests in the debug window of RadiusNT?
What is the last thing on the screen in debug mode?
Can you use Radlogin after the Xyplex's initial request?

Try pfe32 from the /nt directory on the emerald ftp site.
RadiusNT allows spaces in a user name, so you MUST have a tab

notepad and edit.
