I am running RRAS successfully now after much effort. Here's what I did. I
used ODBC mode and and I modified the relationship between the Servers and
Calls table. Instead of Servers:IPAddress relating to Calls:NasIdentifier,
I used Servers:Server to Calls:NasIdentifier. This made authentication work
since it makes use of the machine ( NetBIOS ) name instead of the NAS IP

Then to get Concurrency Control, I did this: I added an entry in
RADATConfigs. Here it is: PPP, 4, ( which is my one and only
RRAS machine's address ).

Of course, this is assuming you got the right RRAS fix.

Let me know if this works for you too.
