Allowing user from one realm but not another

Ok good news I got it to work..New day less tired and man what an idiot I

I have a question though.

Freeradius can look at more than one user file, what is the syntax to allow
this to read another, and where do I place the entry for it

I am wanting to do this so I can convert to complete realm names for the
users, but since so many users with different realms
The process is going to take awhile, so I need for the program to see both
entries so there will be a match till the process is completed
I I would place them in the same file then they would be overwritten

Thanks so much for the help on the realm issue

  I'd really suggest using the FreeRADIUS features.  Ask rodopi to fix
their product.

  Uh... "I tried random things and they didn't work".

  That's not the way to solve the problem.  See "man users" for
*documentation* on how it works.

  That is wrong on a number of points.

  I think you're really not clear on how the "users" file works.  Read
the documentation for it, and then go back and read my earlier message.
 The line above does NOT match my message.  Therefore, it's wrong.
