Just DB space. Newer versions of RadiusNT use GetDate() or
Date from the DB engine, so changing the type should allow
the greater information you are asking about.

Your last sentence is the problem. Make sure the RadiusNT's IP you have
your PM sending the requests to is the primary IP address for the
machine. Since that is the IP the request will be returned with, if
the PM sends to another IP address, it will be returned via a different
IP and the PM rejects the ACK.
