We got some demo equipment from Cisco in order to test SSG functionality.
Although i have read everything i found on CCO, i still have some questions.

Suppose we are trying to make the following scenario.

         ETH                ETH               ETH
NAS <---------> Router1 <-------> Router2 <---+---> SESM
                                               +---> Radius

Router1 (7200) is supposed to run SSG, and NAS (53x0) is supposed to accept isdn calls.

Questions now:

1. Can the above scenario work?
2. Does ALL the traffic from NAS has to pass from the SSG router in order to "filter" it?
3. Does the SSG router need a radius server in order to function?
4. Does the SESM application need a radius server in order to function?
