I have a total of 52 lines coming into NT RRAS servers authenticating from
RadiusNT with no problems, if you don't need the extra accounting and
features of devices like PM's. All our multiport cards are currently
Cyclades, we use some ISA and some PCI versions of their Y-series with
standard analog modems. has their info.
