I guess I am stupid here but I am getting real confused. I looked at you 97
and your 972 database and found two extra columns in the radattributes table
but no extra columns in the radvalues table. I have pretty much the same
radattributes values as yours does. At least for those that it says unknown
for. The two extra columns do not have any values for the vendor columns.
I looked in the documentation for how to put vendor specific info in but
didn't see anything that helped. I don't know why these attributes would be
vendor specific since all NASs pass the username and password which is
attributes 1 and 2. I guess I am just really lost here. Can you give me an
example to go buy? Radvendors and radattributes.. If it would be easier to
call someone to get this running I can do that also. It would probably take
only a few minutes. I don't want to keep wasteing your time haveing to
answer these. Thanks again and sorry I am a little slow here.

Yes, but RadiusNT requires atleast 3 new columns in the RadAttributes
and RadValues tables to handle vendor specific attributes. If those
columns don't exist in your DB, the select will error and RadiusNT
will not be able to load any attributes.
