I would suggest Accounting-on, if that is what most NAS' send out when the
first boot up. This would guarantee that the ports are clear in Radius
(because you know that they are clear on the NAS since it just booted up).
Is there any way that we can check to see if the USR NAS sends out that
kind of signal on bootup (any way to see if a Radius call is made that is) ?
