I should probably add that I can get the Service-Type added using the
'attrs' file in the post-proxy section. But I want to set the
Service-Type based on the user and huntgroup so that users have either
Administrative-User or Login-User access depending on the user and
device. This doesn't seem to be possible in the attrs file.
