I have no issue using a library. Right now I'm working with
Net::Radius. But to use it I need to understand the flow since it only
seems to be able to assemble and disassemble the packets, not tell me how
to do it.

Ok. I was hoping for something more than RFC's, but if thats the
starting point, off I'll go.

Actually, no, I'm not doing this for a customer. I'm doing it
for an OpenSource/Sourceforge project, but I really appreciate your
support in it all.
