This will handle about 400,000 users for authorization/authentication of dial, dial isdn, vpn, ftp, personal homepage web interface, adsl service selection (cisco ssg/sesm), wifi hotspots, content filtering, nntp, and our broadband portal. We mostly use freeradius as a radius server for these that talks ldap to our directory. A few in that list just talk ldap directly.
