You have to do both.
1) You MUST add the Megpop server to your Servers list. Otherwise,
will reject the request w/out processing it.
2) You need to create a RadRoamServer entry with a valid IP address, and
strip domain/treat as local flags set (note, the IP is irrelevant,
doesn't have anything to do with megapop). Then create a
entry with ficom.net as the domain, pointing to the RadRoamServer you
You also need to enable user proxy in the RadiusNT admin and restart
