  The docs describe how the server works.  They don't describe how to
configure every possible setup.

  In this case, you can change their home_server to have a
virtual_server, instead of an IP address.  See raddb/proxy.conf for

  Then, create a virtual server which does:

server accept_all {
	authorize {
		update control {
			Auth-Type := Accept


  And that should work.  If the end users are using PAP or CHAP.  If the
customers are using anything else, it won't work.  The home server will
need to be fixed if the end users are using EAP or MS-CHAP.
