We re-worked the logic of connecting and re-connecting to the SQL Server
so that
RadiusNT will work under worse conditions (SQL Server reboot, delayed
network issues, etc). I am already planning a smart cache for the next
version of RadiusNT that will cache the userlist, and if DB performance
bad or the connection fails, RadiusNT will use the smart cache, which
dynamically updates on the fly and during slow times.
