How does that work Dale ? Getting the Userlist is no problem. But the NT Passwords are. What does RadiusNT do here ? Does it just take the "given" password from the user and then "make that" the Radius password ?

Probably not a problem, but it seems like a non-customer user could get one free chance to get in, in that case, thereby also mucking the real users real password.

I'll bet you've got it figured out better than that... I'd like to understand it though.
