  You fix your client to properly implement the RFC.

  Good luck debugging it.  It's not a FreeRADIUS issue, so I suggest
you don't ask further questions about it here.

  And why the heck is this so complicated?  FreeRADIUS comes with
source code that implements this already!  Is it really so difficult
to read that code, and learn from it?
