This is a print out bug in RadiusNT 2.2. If you look at the RadLogs
entry associated with this, it should be a 19 (I believe) with means
the account type does not have any default attributes. You must use
the Emerald Admin to add default attributes to an account type, or
it does not authentication.

I don't really follow, so I'll guess. :)

If you have two account types, and want a different termed discount for
each, you have to create the two different termed discounts. For example,
lets say the 40 hour gets a 20% and the 100 hour gets a 25% discount annually,
you would need two annual entries with the different discounts.
