We are currently using Vircoms Proxy and Roaming Radius server on our
system. All terminal servers pass info to the Vircom box, which in turn
sends it to the appropriate Database. It costs around $500.00 for just the
roaming features, or $750.00 with the local authentication mode. We use this
as a go between for our Emerald/Radius NT and our roaming partners top
Roaming server.

Your 2nd solution seems very interesting. Anyone out there
running a setup like this?

If I understand well in this setup radiusnt would simply pass all unknown
requests to the roaming server (either ipass or gric) which will return his
answer back to radiunsnt which will again return the answer to the
NAS. right?
