Hello Tom -

Could you please send me a copy of your configurtation file (no secrets), 
together with a trace 4 debug showing the two logins and a copy of the 
relevant record from the session database.

BTW - the latest version is Radiator 3.1 and you should check the history file 
to see if there have been any fixes in this area.



> Hi,
> I am running Radiator-2.18.4 on two boxes that are talking to a centrally

> ClientType TotalControlSNMP and AscendSNMP to query our NAS boxes.
> We are using these radius boxes as proxy servers for our Wholesales Dialup
> service offering, so we have many realms communicating back to many
> <AuthBy RADIUS> clauses. We are enforcing a DefaultSimultaneous 1 in the
> <AuthBy RADIUS> clause. Responses coming back from the Proxied Radius
> Servers do not include a Simultaneous-Use=1 statement. There is a
> Port-Limit=4 statement.
> Having said that, it is my belief that a user that is logged in, and shown
> in the session database, should not be permitted to log in. This is not
> the case here. The user recieves an access accept.
> A level 4 trace showed me that we do not do a SELECT against the Session
> Database or a SNMPGET to the NASes to see if the user is online. Is this
> the behavior of <AuthBy RADIUS>?
> Is there a way to fix this so simultaneous use will be enforced?
> Suggestions?
> Thanks,
