Hi Rudy.

In fairness to Microsoft, I would like to mention the following:

1. I don't run a big company - actiually, I run a very small home-based ISP.

2. I have talked with to Tod Edwards numerous times and I have asked for
several features in RRAS which they have delivered to the public in RRAS
Hotfix 1 - namely that RRAS return the NASIdentifier and NASPort

3. There was a particular time window when Tod told me to send in my
requsted features - just as they began coding for Hotfix 2. I suggested that
RRAS also return the ACCT-SESSION-TIME attribute. Tod told me that they will
do so in Hotfix 2. This will make Time Banking finally possible with RRAS.
