  Hmm... are you sure you didn't add 'Attr-26' to the dictionaries?  Because from my reading of the rlm_rest code, it calls:

		RDEBUG2("Parsing attribute \"%s\"", name);
		attribute = name;
		da = dict_attrbyname(attribute);
		if (!da) {
			RWDEBUG("Attribute \"%s\" unknown, skipping", attribute);

  And the dict_attrbyname() function looks up the *exact* name in the dictionaries.  It doesn't convert "Attr-26" to "Vendor-Specific".

  So using "Attr-26" *should* result in a message of: Attribute "Attr-26" unknown, skipping

  If that happens, it should be relatively easy to update rlm_rest to allow "Attr-26", and parse it's value as a hex string.
