We are using pam_radius to authenticate a witty http-browser (client) to a freeradius server.

Our freeradius server is configured to send a dedicated/special Reply-Message when responding to an authenticate-request.

I have seen in pam_radius_auth.c<> that Reply-Messages are only read as long as (response->code == PW_ACCESS_CHALLENGE).
Reply-Messages are currently not read if (response->code == PW_AUTHENTICATION_ACK).
Is there a reason why Reply-Messages are not read in this case?

Freundliche Grüsse / Best regards / Cordialement
