well, the depends on whether these NASes can be grouped by their IP address - in which case
they can be identified as one (or more) blocks of addresses within a subnet.
see clients.conf original file for example).

another way is to uas SQL to store the clients - and then you can use the dynamic clients
module to check if they are NAS clients as they are added to the network without having
to restart the server

well, just adding new entries to clients.conf doesnt cause a crash.  restarting
the RADIUS daemon after adding entries to clients.conf doesnt cause a crash (unless
youve made a spectacular error in the config! ;-) )
