Hi guys,

I'm not sure if this has come up in the list before (if it has, I'll go back
to lurking and never post again, promise :)

A quick tip if you're having problems with UUnet DAN proxy servers; they
will send a malformed short attribute 24 ("state"), of 'zero length'...

radrecv: Request from host aabbccdd (UUNET) code=1, id=181, length=210
User-Name = "xxxxxx"
Password = "yyyy"
NAS-Identifier = a.b.c.d
NAS-Port = 0
NAS-Port-Type = Async
User-Service = Login-User
Invalid Attribute Length. Attribute: 24 Length:2
Jun 05 22:15:36 2000 [ERR]: Request from UUNET - Malformed Packet
Resp Time: 10 Auth: 5/597 -> 606 Acct: 0/0/542 -> 1140

You must set your RadiusNT up to "Allow malformed" (Configuration tab >
general options).

Those of you in AsiaPac will be lucky enough not to have to set the Ascend
filter attribute (at least until a customer of yours mailbombs... :)
