Yeees, and have a similar one checking for the existence of 
User-Password attribute and settings the Autz-Type to LDAP !

Wow this is going to speed stuff up so much !

Thankyou :)

Ahh yes, I just got how this could work... because to deal with the 
contents of the eap tunnel freeradius proxies it to itself...
And though your only writing the reply attributes to the tunnel , when 
the tunneled request comes back,
the attributes will be used in the main packet sent back to the NAS, 
including the eap message from the proxied request ...

Is the proxying to self new behaviour ?

I know the Authz-Type and Auth-Type stuff is only in CVS so you must not 
have been able to do it in 1.1* ?
