If you use a CA, and the Radius server cant reach each other.

If you use a CA, and the Radius server cant reach the CA will the users still be able to be authenticated. For example when the CA is at a Data center and users are in a remote location and the WAN is down?

"when the CA is at a Data center and users are in a remote location and the WAN is down?" - think about that... If the WAN is down, then its down, and no one can get to it. But can a Radius server cache authentication when the CA service is not available is the question?

This is a good read, all about Radius stuff :)

I wasnt/am sure if the users that are connected will stay connected and if they do, for how long? Also, not sure if the Radius server will cache the CRL and still be able to authenticate for a period of time.

if the WAN is down users won't get to the datacenter

and if the guys who put it together had anything on the ball, idle connections have very limited live time. Once the idle time is up, that's it.
