This is not a problem for us because we can tell by which node they dial
into as to what table to use to look up the code.

So what I would need to do is remove the descriptions for the portmasters so
in emerald it shows us the number code, and then get radius to log
ascend-disconnect-cause in the acctterminatecause field along with the
acct-terminate-cause from the portmasters.

So now I have 2 questions.

1) how do I get emerald to show me the number codes for the
acctterminatecause field? Can I just remove the descriptions from
emeraldadmin/radiusnt/attributevalues and then it shows the numbers again?

2) what do I have to do (I'm still not clear on this) to make radius
information for field 195 ascent-disconnect-cause so it gets logged in the
acctterminatecause field? I've no idea where this relationship information
is actually configured.
