Since I didn't get an answer to my last question I have decided to go all
positive on the list and propose a solution to the RARAS problem, the way I
read the RFC for accounting, you are in compliance when you send either
attribute 4 (NAS IP Address) OR attribute 32 (Machine Name) or BOTH... USR
sends Both, RARAS sends 32, everyone else it seems sends attribute 4.

to make Radius-NT work with any compliant port server, if attribute 4 is
sent, have it use attribute 4 as the NAS Id. if attribute 4 is not sent,
look up the ip address of attribute 32 and use that as the nas Id.

this may be a quick code change (I think it should be), anyway I
currently have a test platform set up with an end to end isolated system to
test on if I can be of any assistance testing a fix let me Know...
