Attribute 4 is officially NAS-IP-Address and 32 is NAS-Identifier. The
is an IP Address type and the second is a string. USR is the only one I
of using 32 (they actually send both 32 and 4, which IMHO is against the
RADIUS RFC). Typically with a USR I name 4 NAS-Identifier and 32
RadiusNT handles this without having to fuss with all the names (if you
them with the RFC specifics for RadiusNT 2.2, it can handle it fine).
