Thanks, but this is not a NAS.
This is a monitor application for various servers (http, ping, smtp, pop3,

The problem is that for the radius test, there's not a prebuild test as for
other protocols, but I need to specify the string to send to freeradius, to
simulate the RADIUS protocol. Do you know if there's some docs about the
RADIUS protocol or radius packet syntax?

Otherwise, do you know other software to monitor some radius servers?
In other words i need a software to simulate a NAS, and if the radius
doesn't respond can send a warning mail to me.
