The NAS is a MAX6000 and the problem is with the NAS not Emerald.
There seems to be a hardware issue with the MAX 6000 randomly rebooting and
thus it sends no Acc Stop to the Radius. I find out by my customers not
being able to reconnect due to them still being showen as connected.
I would like to be able to clear all the active connections in Emerald so
the can log back you can imagen it takes a while to clear all our
active connections.
Lucient has agreed that their is a problem with the unit(s) and I will be
getting a replacement next week.
Is there a way to clear all the connections in one hit ?
I have not seen any requests to Radius when the Max comes back online.

What kind of terminal server? In -x15 debug mode does RadiusNT show
that its sending any special packets to note that the NAS is starting
