Problem returning attributes to Bluesocket

I am trying to set a wireless network where a client will use a
Bluesocket gateway in conjunction with Freeradius to perform
authentication. I want the radius server to authenticate a user in LDAP
and return certain attributes to the Bluesocket gateway so that the
gateway can place the user in a role based on those attributes. A
sniffer trace of the attempted authentication reveals that the
Freeradius does request the attributes that I am interested in
(x121address and edupersonprimaryaffiliation) and does receive the
values back from LDAP. My problem is that these values are not then
passed on to the Bluesocket gateway. What am I missing?

Output from debug mode follows:

rad_recv: Access-Request packet from host A.B.C.D:32801, id=140,
        User-Name = "someuser"
        User-Password = "somepwd"
