... so the NAS probably doesn't have the correct shared secret associated with the src IP address in the packet. Check your traces to see that it's set to what you expect.

In your attribute list include the AVP:

Message-Authenticator = 0x00

your NAS will probably stop responding to disconnect requests (if it actually validates the Message-Authenticator).

Read through the code in radclient.c

The call to rad_verify is just using the secret specified on the command line, it is not dependent on src IP address. UDP packet headers are *NOT* used when calculating the Message-Authenticator as shown by the RFC snippet I posted previously.
