I have a question. We were wondering is this is possible, Having 2 ISP
share the same POP? if yes how? The only way I see it that it can work is
somehow it has to know which ISP the user is subcribe and have a virtual
radius (for lack of a better word). then when the user is calling in the
Vradius knows were to route the auth (either ISP1 or ISP2) so he can get
verify and connect.

The only way I can see this working either having the user add something
unique in the user name (like user@isp1, or user@isp2) or have the POP with
2 different numbers (one for ISP1 the other ISP2) then have the vradius
look at the Nas-Port-DNIS number and route the auth request to either the
radius of ISP1 or ISP2. Has anyone tried (or doing) this? What software
can do this?
