  RADIUS doesn't do that.  It's a *terrible* idea.

  *Please* use the correct terminology.  Do you mean "failed", as in
"failed to get a response", or "rejected", as in "received a reject packet"?

  If you use vague terminology, it's impossible to help you.

  The server treats rejects as being definitive.  Changing them later to
accepts is wrong and broken.  Fix your design so that you send the
packets to the correct server.
