I'm experimenting with using freeradius 2.0.4 to authenticate 
administrative access to network equipment.  If I deploy it then I'll 
end up with well over a hundred clients, so I'd like to describe the 
entire address range in a single 'client' block.

I also want to have a syslogged record of each login attempt, which I 
can do, but I can't figure out how to log the client's IP address 
without having to specify every client individually in freeradius's 
config.  As it is, I just get

Login OK: [username] (from client big-netblock port 0)

Is there a way around this without having to maintain a huge list of
