I was using the same thing with Notepad and it brought up notepad
each time I did an accounting start record. Are you receiving
the Accounting start record, or are you expecting it to happen
on the auth request?

This is your terminal server sending requessts without a username.
RadiusNT adds a username with a string of "NULL" so that it can save
the record (username is a required field in the DB). You would need
to talk to your NAS vendor to find out why this happens and what you
can do about it.

You can, but the concurrency control and callsonline will not be
updated correctly.
