(RADIATOR) Storing copies of proxied accounting packets

Hello Robert -

I don't recommend mixing Realms and Handlers in the same configuration file, 
so Realms should be converted to Handlers, and your configuration would then 
look something like this:

# convert Realm foo.bar to Handler

<Handler Realm = foo.bar>
	AuthByPolicy ContinueAlways
	# AuthBy SQL to store local accounting
	# *MUST* appear first
	<AuthBy SQL>
		DBSource ...
		DBUsername ...
		DBAuth ....
		# disable authentication
		# configure accounting
		AccountingTable ....
		AcctColumnDef .....
	# AuthBy RADIUS clause to forward requests
	# *MUST* appear last
	<AuthBy RADIUS>

Have a look at section 6.28 in the Radiator 3.1 reference manual.

Also note that this topic (and many others) has been discussed on the mailing 
list many times already, so you should also check the archive site:
