I would guess that you are only see authentication requests, and
not accounting requests. If you run RadiusNT in -x15 debug mode,
are you seeing accounting requests? They will be of type 4 and
have an acct-status-type attribute in them.

It will only if it is receving the accounting information from the NAS
for those sessions.
