OK, yes, I realize that was creating a user name.  So if I change that format line to have a Group attribute instead of User-Name, then I have a Group being created by NAS-IP-Address.  I still don't get how I can test to make sure that the user is part of this group.  I have tried adding the group name to the usergroup table, but whether or not this value is correct (corresponds to the value in the nas_group file) or is even present doesn't make a difference.  The user is always getting authenticated.  Where does the logic need to lie to check that the user is a part of the named group?
