  Now you're being ridiculous.

  The NIS documentation doesn't say you can't use NIS to make wine,
either.  That doesn't mean it *does* make wine.

  If the NIS documentation doesn't tell you *how* to do this with
RADIUS, it likely means you *can't* do it with RADIUS.  Don't get mad
at me... that's how computers work.

  I understand.  I'm telling you your questions are based on false

  You can tell FreeRADIUS to do almost anything you want.  But if the
RADIUS client doesn't support the functionality you need, it doesn't
matter that FreeRADIUS is sending things like "full username".  The
NAS won't know what to do with it, and will ignore it.

  Don't get mad at me, this is how RADIUS works.
