Long Authentification Delay Time

Okay, I upgraded my MAX to 5.0Ap10. That was the latest patch I could =
find. I still have long delays in logging in. I am pretty sure the =
additional delay (normally 30 seconds) comes AFTER the MAX has sent the =
request to my RadiusNT server and RadiusNT has done its deal. The =
reason I say this is because I dial in from one box, switch over to my =
RadiusNT server, see the authentication and accounting packets, start my =
stopwatch, and the other system finally connects 30 seconds later.

There must be an attribute I have set incorrectly in the MAX as best I =
can figure.

Which version of software are you using on the MAX? Apparently, Ascend =
fixed the problem that caused this in version 5.0Ap8 and higher...

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone else has in the past, or currently does, =3D
experience extended authentication periods running Emerald with RadiusNT =
is ODBC only mode. In other words, when I have a user dial-in, the =3D
modem on my MAX connects immediately, but, it can take up to a minute to =
verify the user name and password. This is happening when this is next =
to no traffic on the network. That sure seems to be a long time to me! =
Especially when I have the MAX connected through a 10bastT switch =3D
instead of a hub. The switch then connects to the server via a =3D
100baseTX hub.

Any suggestions?

NT 4.0 (Build 1381-SP3) - MS SQL Server 6.5 - RadiusNT V 1.16.60
Emerald Client 2.1.8 - Emerald Admin 2.1.0 - Serv-U V2.2 32 Bit
MailSite Version 1.2.2 - NAS Ascend MAX 4000
