Our apologies about that; we were testing another application on the NT box
that ate all system resources and IIS wouldn't feed any page anymore.

To offer a brief explanation, our IIS ISAPI authentication filter uses the
RADIUS protocol to communicate with a database. Typically, this would be
the RADIUS Server used by your Network Access Servers/Terminal Servers.

We're also developping a back-end that is able to communicate the concepts
of "privileges". A link would be locked on that privilege and only users
that have would be able to view it. This privilege communication isn't
part of the RADIUS protocol, so "generic" RADIUS Server won't support this

The IIS Authentication Filter is currently in closed beta; if you're
interested in participating in the beta, please email the programmer,
