RE: [RadiusNT] Server Ports table not populating correctly

It's a problem with the HiperARC. Their port numbering is retarded.

I complained to USR a year ago about this and they added the commands:

USR/3com defaults to 256 per port and if you are running hiper DSPs you need
to change that to 24. If you're running quad modem cards it's 4. If you
have both HiperDSPs and Quads in the same chassis they you need to set it to
24 (the highest of the two).

I'm a little confused here. RadiusNT does NOT create the server ports
table entries. It will only update the ones that you have based on
either the trigger or manual calls update. You have to manually add
entries to the server ports table as reported by your NAS. The best
way that I have found to do this is:

Select NASIdentifier, NASPort, Count(*)
