Hi, thanks for your quick reply.
I have seen the documents related with wimax in the freeradius, files in rlm_wimax directory, dictionary.wimax, /modules/wimax. However, I didn't figure out how to configure it to let it use the wimax vender specified attribute. I also find the MSK is set to 32 bytes length. I am a little confused. Why not set the length to 64 bytes as the standard specified? In this case, how to generate 64-byte MSK in the access accept msg?

  If you look at the *rest* of the configuration files, you'll see more
references to WiMAX.  Also, the release announcements, the web page...

  Because you have to configure it to do that.

  That's not how RADIUS works.  It doesn't "determine" a dictionary to use.

  Read raddb/modules/wimax.  This is documented.
