Hi there,

First all, thanks for then answers!!! :D

After that, is there anyone there using FreeRadius servers as proxy for
RSA Radius Server?

I need to deploy a configuration ASAP, I could do a configuration on my
own buy I don´t have physical time to work on it, since I am trying to
finish some tests with RSA ACE Server and it is taking too much time :(

Any help or simple configuration (file or url or something) to start to
work would be appreciated.

Thanks again.
