Have you tried running RadiusNT in -x15 debug mode to
see what happens during thir down time? It might be
crashing, running into a license problem, etc.

Most likely this is a JET database problem. There is a none
JET memory leak that affects many things. A customer have been
fighting an ASP memory problem with jet for a long time.
Its hard to pinpoint the problemt to RadiusNT, since it will
run for months w/out a problem when using something like
SQL Server or Sybase.
