    > Thank you very much for that. I have one more question: Am I correct in assuming that if a server responds with an Access-Reject in response to a Status-Server message, it is still marked as alive? From what I understand, either Access-Accept or Access-Reject is acceptable in that regard?

    Yes, I think both types are fine. This would also be expected and 
    reasonable if, for example, Access-Request is used for probing.


    See also AddToKeepaliveRequest for populating the probe contents.

    This option is available for probing peers that do not respond to 
    Status-Server messages. This was added to Radiator 4.20 as suggested by 
    Paul Dekkers. It was needed to get probing to work with some eduroam 
    organisations, if I remember correctly.
