** How to use FreeRADIUS virtual servers
Virtual servers provide a powerful way to define unique policies for different traffic sources. When policy rules for each traffic source are defined in their own separate configuration file, it’s a lot simpler to define them, understand them, and debug them.

Unfortunately, the logic expressed in the if/else statements quickly becomes difficult to understand and maintain for all but the simplest scenarios.

Changes to one piece may result in unexpected side effects.
