You do not configure the database path itself in the RadiusNT
administrtor (you configure that in the ODBC administrator).
The path for running off a different server would inded be
like you specified above. However, I would recommend using
some of the linking abilities in Access and create a local database
that links only that tables that are modified alot (like MasterAccounts
and SUbAccounts, etc) to the main database. Some of the other
tables that you don't change much (perhaps RadATConfigs) could
be in the local database and give you better performance.
