Vendor-Specific Attribute

I am using RadiusNT 2.5(ODBC) with several Telebit NetBlazers as RAS. I am
having a difficult time getting accurate information on how Radius
Accounting works from either end. The NetBlazer 3.3 Manual lists the
following as being sent in the Radius Accounting packet:

User-Name 1
User-Password 2
CHAP-Password 3
NAS-IP-Address 4
NAS-Port 5
Service-Type 6
Framed-Protocol 7
Login-Port 16
Vendor-Specific 26
Acct-Session-ID 44

Vendor data is supposedly sent out under the Vendor-Specific attribute.

Even though the Netblazer says that it doesn't support them, AcctSessionTime,
AcctInputOctets, and AcctOutputOctets do get logged. What I don't see in
RadiusNT is any allowance for the Vendor-Specific attribute. Do I just
create a field called VendorSpecific to get this to log?
