You can trial RadiusNT in text mode with up to 100 users or ODBC mode
for up to 100 authentications. You can send a reuqest to sales for a
temp key if you need to more than that.

If RadiusNT reads an error in the users file, it stops reading the users
file. Run RadiusNT in -x15 debug mode and it will show the users being
read from the users file, and also show if there were any errors (and which
user it has a problem with).

Remove the logfile entry. RadiusNT 2.5 logs to the logfile rather than
the screen if you have a logfile defined.
