Below is part from RadiusNt25 doc. Also can you give me note after your test
what method of encryption is used?

7. Command Line and Registry Settings

RadiusNT can take a variety of command line options. Typically you will
only use these if you are trying to debug a problem or test a configuration.
command line options can also be specified in the registry as permanent

Warning: Changing values in the registry for Windows NT can cause the system
to become unstable or stop working. Always use caution when manually
registry entries.

When radius.exe -install is used to install RadiusNT as a service, it will
create the
To add parameters to RadiusNT via the registry, you need to add the values
to the RadiusNT key. Command line options will override registry defaults.
example to set the default MODE for RadiusNT, you would add the value named:
as 1 for ODBC, or 2 for BOTH. 0 is the default of text mode.
RadiusNT only reads the registry values at startup. If you change a value,
must re-start RadiusNT in order for the change to take affect.

Following is a list of all Command Line Options and Registry values, with
descriptions, currently supported by RadiusNT.
Command Line Registry Description

-E EncryptPasswords RadiusNT will use the UNIX
one-way encryption
to check the
passwords in either
the database
or the users file.
If you only want a few
users to support
this, use the "UNIX"
passwd type from a
UNIX passwd
file. Only advanced
users should use this
option as it can
prevent users
from authenticating
if used incorrectly.
