In a typical ISP, your RADIUS server is an important part of your customer service, and it is important that it is available all the time. Radiator RADIUS server is very reliable but it is possible that it is accidentally killed, or that a system problem causes it to exit. Make provisions for Radiator to be started automatically at system start-up to make sure it is available all the time.
In a Unix environment, there are 3 ways to make Radiator to start at system start-up. The preferred method is to start and restart radiusd with restartWrapper, but you can also start and restart it with inetd(1) or init. On Windows, you can run Radiator as a system service.
