thats easy. add them to the NAS table in your MySQL DB and then simply read the
sql.conf file near the bottom and uncomment the readclients = yes line.

???? no. what you've done there is enable SQL in the authorise a
device attempting to use RADIUS will be checked against SQL. except that it wont
because the NAS trying to talk wont be allowed to talk (and commenting out
'files' means that the users file wont work anymore....thats what that option does!)
