This complete listing of values and descriptions for
"Ascend-Disconnect-Cause" is not in the Max manual nor is it online. As of
the release of 5.0A for the Max, I noticed an Ascend-Disconnect-Cause of
185 pop up periodically, so I called up Ascend and asked them about it. No
one knew what it was because they had no listings for it in any of their
docs, so the tech that I was talking to took off for a few minutes to go
hunt down someone who handles RADIUS, and he found a brand new listing on a
RADIUS tech's desk and faxed it to me. I retyped the whole thing in
notepad (NT 4.0) and have attatched it for anyone who will find it useful.

NOTE: There is nothing listed for an Ascend-Disconnect-Cause = 1,
however, I've noticed that a 1 will show up anytime that I
disconnect ("hang-up") a user from my Max 4004 console (via
telnet or VT-100 terminal). This was evident even before the
OS upgrade to 5.0A.
