  This is documented.

  The proxy.conf file that comes with the server contains documentation
describing how to have multiple home servers, and how to put them in
pools.  Please read it.

 The sample configuration files contain examples of how to have
"radrelay" functionality in 2.1.  See "man radrelay".  It points you to
a configuration file with examples.

  This is *documented* in the server.  I don't understand why people
spend so much time searching for third party web sites when the server
includes documentation.

  The days of the server documentation saying "install, and good luck!"
are OVER.  The server includes documentation.  I hope people *read* it.
