  The "RADIUS over TCP" document is really just an into to RadSec, which
is RADIUS over SSL over TCP.

  Using RADIUS over TCP all by itself is really not a good idea.  For
NAS to server communication, there isn't enough traffic to keep TCP
happy.  For inter-server proxying, it has no more security and privacy
than normal RADIUS.
