Should "Auto Proxy" under the "Servers" tab point to "none" or to the
corresponding entry under "Roam Servers"? Does the "Port Type", "Starts at
0" etc... make any difference or the number of "Ports" and "Modems" or can
they be left alone?

MegaPop gave me four Access Servers. This means I will have four
entries under "Roam Domains". Will this cause a problem?

Previously when I checked "User Proxy" and restarted the Radius Server it
refused to authenticate even my local users. When I ran in debug mode it
would load the defaults and after sometime would load the clients and then
it would go no further. I had to uncheck "User Proxy" and restart Radius to
allow anyone to log on. The Radius version is 2.5.124 with a file size of
331kb and a date of 06/08/1998.
