  The server should always reply to accounting packets.  It only replies when the "accounting" section returns "ok".  Most modules which do something (sql, detail, etc.) do this.

  As always, run the server in debug mode.  If it isn't replying to accounting packets, then fix the configuration.

  Yes.  Just add an "update" section in the "authorize" section, before anything else:

	update control {
		Simultaneous-Use := 1

  Those are all different kinds of networking.  They don't affect RADIUS.

  Update the SQL queries to pick an IP at random.  But in general this is a bad idea.  It slows down the SQL queries a lot.
