I looked at the port field in the database and it is defined as 4 int ...
which to me means that it is only capable of 4 digits.. ie 6010 but not

I also looked at the Cisco page about the attributes and it appears that
the IETF defined the NAS-Port as being 5 digits....

Here is their info...

Indicates the physical port number of the network access server that is
authenticating the user. The NAS-Port value (32 bits) consists of one or
two 16-bit values (depending on the setting of the radius-server
extended-portnames command.) Each 16-bit number should be viewed as a
5-digit decimal integer for interpretation as follows:

For asynchronous terminal lines, async network interfaces, and virtual
async interfaces, the value is 00ttt, where ttt is the line number or async
interface unit number.

For ordinary synchronous network interface, the value is 10xxx.

For channels on a primary rate ISDN interface, the value is 2ppcc.

For channels on a basic rate ISDN interface, the value is 3bb0c.

For other types of interfaces, the value is 6nnss.

As you can see from the last line.. the 60100.. etc is defined as 6nnss

Maybe this will help to point me in the right direction!!!!!!!

As for entering the ports.. Microsoft Visual InterDev will allow me to use
the tables just like I would be using a spreadsheet... so I can enter them
their.. except I am limited to 4 int....
