how can a field alone say that it is a reply item or a check item?
my ldap.attrmap says
checkItem       Calling-Station-Id              radiusCallingStationId

yeah, am a newbie for freeradius server but am trying my best :)

  If you put the MAC into another field in LDAP, you can query the LDAP

how to implement the above?(this is the question that eludes me)

PS: i would really like to know why filtering the ldap database using uid
works and fails while using radiusCallingStationId

cheers for helping out :)
