Re-read the readme.txt on RadiusNT 2.5, as it has a note about the
Malformed packet issue. I just recently went through this with another
Ascend customer, and after packet tracing the problem it was an issue
with the Ascend, not RadiusNT. 2.5 is a little more strict about
malformed packets (unless you add a registry entry), since Malformed
packets are one of the biggest causes of crashing a RADIUS server.

If you send me a -x15 -X capture of the packet, I'll quote the
RFC telling you why its Malformed so you can send it to Ascend.
You might want to check which version of AOS you are running.
Anything before 5.0Ap42 is pretty problem proned.
