Configure SQL to timeout requests rather than rejecting if no connections available

I read your previous as "The issue is that you don't want to respond to the *client*. You *do* want the virtual server to respond to the proxy."
This made me think: "The previous change I made to make the virtual server not respond in the case of SQL failing is causing the virtual server not to respond the proxy, so I must need to revert that change. But I'm kind of confused on whether or not that's the correct course of action, so I'm going to request clarification before I make a change, since I don't have a working method of replicating this problem in my test environment right now because my test environment isn't set up to make 30+ RADIUS requests in a single second and resource exhaust my test RADIUS server."
I then read back through my previous postings and realized I hadn't included the original configuration, so I posted it in hopes that maybe my confusion was stemming from a mis-communication between us caused by my failure to initially supply all linformation.

Ok, so it's apparent that I need to get an environment set up where I can get debug information for the situation. The only reason for my previous comments was to exhaust all other options before I started doing that, because I expected it was going to take me a couple hours to either (1) set up my dev environment to generate a resource exhaustion scenario or (2) learn enough about how to use the radius client tool to simulate the same sort of setup.
I do appreciate the effort you have put in and are continuing to put toward assisting me with my problem. I'm disappointed by the nature of the response I got for trying to clarify things before I spent hours generating debug results, in case the confusion was stemming from something easily cleared up by me including information I originally left out. I'll reply back after I'm able to generate the necessary debug logs.
