No, you will need to set both just like you need to set both IP
addresses even if you are using the same RADIUS server for
authentication and accounting. Anyway, I should really replace that
command line way of configuring things with a configuration file. It is
not really that wise to require passwords to be set on command line and
there is already quite a few options to make the command lines complex.
