RadiusNT is currently running on a PDC. I will work on moving RadiusNT to a
server dedicated for auth. This should help with the response time. What
about the username FramedProtocol? Is this the data retrieved from the DB?
If it was bad data from the PM2 I would think it would fail the TEXT mode

The problem is the speed of the authentication. The WINNT sam isn't
a fast authentication, and there is nothing RadiusNT can do about it.

The first request comes in an is responded to in almost four seconds.
Typicall a PM will re-send the auth requests in three seconds.
Therefore, it sends the second request, gets the response back from
the first request and uses that response. RadiusNT then NAKs the
second response, but the PM has long completed that request and just
ignores the second response.

Is RadiusNT running on a BDC, PDC, or stand alone server?
