I couldn't figure out how to have the client (in this case a cisco ASA5500
VPN) send the group profile id or name along with the request, so I ended
up doing it the other way, where the Radius server sends back a list of
authorized groups, and my appliance makes the decision on authorization. I
don't know if that's the best way or not.
