Hi Brian -
Apologies - I stand corrected. :-(
You are quite right - I had confused <AuthBy UNIX> and <AuthBy SYSTEM>.
So, yes you can use a UNIX-style password file on an NT box. The only likely
problems with this are file access permissions and file location issues.

Well yes you can - just set up another instance of Radiator on the Solaris
machine and use a proxy configuration. However this is probably not the ideal

Yes you can. <AuthBy SQL> can take the EncryptedPassword parameter if you are
storing encrypted passwords. See Section 6.23.7 in the manual.
