You must make sure the RadRoamServerID for the localhost entry
(or whatever you are running radlogin to) is set to a defined
RadRoamServer entry that points to machine b.

Well, more correctly, any RADIUS request from a server entry that has
a RadRoamServerID that is not null will be forwarded to that RoamServer
(not just any UDP packet).

The eval versions of RadiusNT do allow for enterprise features.
