peap termination issue when using fault tolerance

I setup FreeRadius as proxy as I want to extract MSCHAPv2 auth from EAP-PEAP/MSCHAPv2 ,and proxy only MSCHAPv2 request to another two radius servers for fault tolerance.

I can successfully do it with each one of the IAS servers below individually, however if one of the serves goes down and request is forward to the second servers on the list I get an error :

Error receiving packet: Connection reset by peer

Any suggestions how to enable Fault tolerance when using two realms ??


client { secret = secretpass
                            shortname = NETMOTION }


 realm {
                authhost              =
                accthost               =
                secret                   = 1111

 realm {
                authhost              =
                accthost               =
                secret                   = 1111


DEFAULT FreeRADIUS-Proxied-To ==, Proxy-To-Realm :=

default_eap_type = mschapv2
                  proxy_tunneled_request_as_eap = no
                  use_tunneled_reply = no
                  copy_request_to_tunnel = yes
