By "different server" are you referring to a different RadiusNT server
running against the same SQL Server or two different RadiusNT servers
running against two different SQL Servers? The accounting data has to
go into the same database as the authentication does for the on-line
features to work. RadiusNT does not require users to be in the
database jsut to store the accounting information, though.
