            Radiator is fantastic.
            Having worked with Radiator for over 8 years I can only reiterate all of the positive comments about this product that have been made before me.
            Flexible, powerful, scalable and extensive.
            I had a recent problem with tacacs functionality and I was delivered a patch within 12 hours - what a turnaround and unheard of with any other product.
            Note that this is the only time I have found a bug. Normally I am seeking support to help me to understand alternatives and options that I have not yet explored.
            A great product with very responsive support.
            Keep up the great work.

            The Radiator team does it right; excellent software, clear documentation, and top-notch support all at a sane price. This is how for-profit software should work and differentiate from freeware. Well done!

            Radiator is second to none when it comes to RADIUS servers, period. Of all the Radius Servers i ever evaluated (FreeRADIUS, Steel-Belted Radius, <verysmallfont>IIAS</verysmallfont>, and much more), Radiator quickly turned out to be the best. Radiator runs on almost every OS known to man (or at least everywhere perl runs :D), is easy and fast to configure and extremely well documented, and there are boatloads of plugins for almost every intended purpose.

            keep up the good work guys!

            Best RADIUS Server
            Radiator is incredibly flexible and complete. Very stable product with support for a wide range of authentication types. I would highly recommend Radiator to anyone looking to implement a RADIUS solution.
