    So I guess the follow up question is then, if I want to create multiple virtual servers, I am going to have to find this config file if I want those servers to deal with the inner-tunnel requests or are you suppose to just define another server in the inner-tunnel file if you want a second virtual server that deals with inner-tunnel requests?
    That was a lot of certs?  I have a lot more, those are just the most recent....HeHe...  I would attempt a cert in freeradius so I can pick it up faster but I never heard of a class for it much less a certification or training materials...
Thanks for the fast response.

That's a stupid question for someone with so many certs! ;) jus givn ya $hit.

AKAIK it's not hard coded. In a config file somewhere is probably something like: if request type is 'x' then server inner-tunnel. Its been some time since I looked at the conf files so I can't say for sure which one and where.

Subject: Question on Virtual Servers and inner-tunnel 

Hi All,
    Hope this is not to stupid of a question but I have been checking out the inner-tunnel virtual server under sites-enabled.  I read up a little on virtual servers and it looks like the inner-tunnel virtual server is just a regular old virtual server yet in the comments is says it specifically handles inner tunnel requests.  I went through the default config for the inner-tunnel and did not see any commands that were un-commented that seemed to specify that the server exclusively dealt with inner-tunnel requests.  So my question is wether naming the server inner-tunnel causes it to exclusively handle inner-tunnel requests, in other word is inner-tunnel a hard coded name that has to be used for handling inner-tunnel requests?
