  No.  The default behavior for the *NAS* is to send 3 retries every 5
seconds.  FreeRADIUS just passes those packets along to the home server.

  I don't see what is unclear about the documentation.

1) you can still set retry_delay and retry_count

2) just as with 1.x

3) in the same place in the config files as with 1.x

4) those 2 configuration items will only apply to old-style realms

5) old-style realms have "authhost" and "accthost"

6) so... configure retry_delay and retry_count as you did with 1.x

7) configure a realm as you did with 1.x

8) it *will* work
