I'm trying to set-up a second RadiusNT server. Right now I have one
set-up and its running smooth. but I can't get the second to authenticate.
here's what I did. I installed the second server and modify the files as

NAS-IP-Address =
NAS-Port = 4
NAS-Port-Type = Async
Checking user record PW_PASSWORD type
chkPwd->strvalue is test
decrypted pwd is test
Sending Ack of id 243 to aaaaaaaa (
User-Service = Framed-User

Response Time: 200

to dial in will ask me again to put my user name and password. Also while
I was testing it a few users try to connect and the same thing happend. My
guest it seems that I have to communications from radius to my NAS. I even
copy my client & user file from my primary and did the same. Any ideas or
suggestion? Thanks.

BTW I'm running:
radiusNT 1.16.60
