thanx alan,,
I have configured a proxy server using documentation of 'proxy.conf'. which
is proxying requests to 2 home_servers. Yes you are right, may b the tool
which I am using (Radius NT client) sending requests in series. I tried to
use Rad Client to send requests in Parallel, but i wasn't succeed. Could
you please help me out to send parallel requests to proxy server???
Bundle of thanks in advance :)
