I apologize for not giving all the info, I am new to radius and am still 
learning.  Yes I am refering to the detail file.  Currently we have implemented 
a version of MERIT Radius.  I know less about that than Freeradius, so forgive 
me if I do not give you what you need.

Currently we have two files that appear to be accounting data to me.

Following are what we get (I have removed IP info for safty sake)

These two lines are from logfile.20060220

Mon Feb 20 13:07:12 2006: Received-Authentication: 63/62890 'waltr' from 

Mon Feb 20 13:07:12 2006: Authentication: 63/62890 'waltr' from XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX 
port 9126 PPP - OK -- total 0, holding 0

No, what is more important to me os from the session.20060220.las file (mainly 
the first line)  This is strange though as because Pre-Auth the accounting data 
is sent to the merit radius then forwarded to a freeradius and back.  Either 
way this is the format of the merit radius and our scripts.

##      NAS-IP-Address:2=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX        NAS-Port-Type:1=Virtual

I hope this helps clear up my question.
