what i meant is my mikrotik NAS connects to FR and i need to send CoA 
packets to the NAS to reduce speed for hotspot clients so basically FR 
originates the CoA so where does the NAS ip, port and secret details go 
in? currently i put it in clients.conf and that works so if this the 
right place or in sites-enabled i need to put the originate_coa file 
with the details there?
