Ascend machines use two integer attributes to reflect initial connection
speeds relative to the NAS:
Ascend-Data-Rate (attribute 197): user's initial upload speed
Ascend-Xmit-Rate (attribute 255): user's initial download speed
I don't know anything about Connect-Info. This might be VSA related, but
I'm not sure. It's not listed in RFC 2058 anywhere and we don't use it for
The remote NASes that we use send out the user's initial download speed as a
VSA and we have that mapped to Ascend-Xmit-Rate, so that column in the Calls
table always has the user's download speed regardless of what NAS sent the

I have my own customized "call stats" script that I use to dig up the info
for sessions; I don't even bother with the Time-on tab.
