If you want RadiusNT to store an accounting attribute, you need to add
the name of the attribute from your dictionary, but without any dashes.

For example, if you want to store the Caller-Id attrbiute, add a field
in the calls table named "CalledId". Make sure you get the type
also (varchar, integer, or date).

Because with MS Access, you need to enable the Manual Calls Update
option for RadiusNT for this to work.

RadiusNT should be available failry soon. We are putting the final
licensing on it as we speak. It will be $495 for two servers, $99
for each additional one. Support will be the same as Emerald (check
the Emerald web page).
