The other key to that features is setting the ODBC timeout lower than
the default (15 seconds). For example, I use a timeout of about 3
when I'm testing it. There is an ODBCRetry option as well, that tells
RadiusNT how often to re-try the failed ODBC connection (so that it
try every time, creating an infinite timeout situation.
