Re: Object has no relationsbip

I had this problem, and it was due to a syntax problem in the config file
as I remember it.

Take this example:

[start of file]

object Auth {
        ip "";
        type radius;
        secret "sysmon";
        port 1645;
        username "xxx";
        password "xxx";
        desc "Auth";
        dep "OfficeGate";

object OfficeGate {
        ip "";
        type ping;
        desc "OfficeGate";

If you don't have the " quotes then it won't work and will complain about
relationships I believe.

Incidentally I still don't have my radius testing working but this has
been shelved, I think Jared is a busy guy and will probably have a new
version out which solves this. He did send me a patch but that didn't
change anything :-(
