G'day Cory,

If Comindico can give you a dictionary of attributes they send and 
expect to receive, the authentication protocols they support, timeouts, 
UDP port numbers, and NAS/RADIUS proxy IPs, that should be all you need. 
  If you really have to, ask for their suggested Radiator config, then 
transpose to freeradius, which I'm willing to give you a hand with if 
you like.

You may also find it useful to subscribe and post to the AusNOG 
( and isp-australia 
(mailto:join-isp-australia at in the hope that your 
posting is brought to the attention of clueful Comindico people.
