Hi,
the event viewer of a NT tells me that the ppa3nt device has not been correctly started. The Radius service doesn't work anymore, and I don't know if there's a relation between the two incidents.
In any case, what is "ppa3nt" ?

thanks,
Pedro.

In general, any device connected to the parallel printer port.  An Iomega Zip drive, for example, would be a "ppa3nt" device.
