RadiusNT itself sends the message via the RADIUS protocol to the
RADIUS client. Many terminal servers will display this message in
plain text if the user did not use PAP/CHAP to authenticate. However,
the LCP/PAP/CHAP protocols do NOT have facilities for displaying
messages. Therefore, although not a limitation of RadiusNT, its not
possible to display a message to a majority of the users who have
concurrency problems.
