A bit off subject:

Some limitations?

I noticed that I could not get radiusNT to accept more than 16 characters
for my NAS when using database.....this was a real problem I had to drop
all ref to DNS to the NAS machines due to the fact that my root domain =
alone is longer than that.

Also, has anyone configured radius to give out static ips and routes ok
with Access database? I can't seem to get it to do that at all, doesn't
like an IP address for a value of the Framed-Address attribute. And =
you have to setup a profile for EACH user with a different static ip.

Using Access db, ODBC, radius.6, NT4 SP3
