Hello Rodolfo -

If you specify "Simultaneous-Use" as a check item that Radiator is 
configured to use, it will give the sort of error you see if the number 
of sessions is exceeded according to the Radiator session database.

You haven't included your configuration file so I can't say for sure, 
but if you don't want Radiator to do simultaneous use checking at all 
you can specify a NULL session database:

<SessionDatabase NULL>

together with a trace 4 debug showing what is happening?
