>whats the difference between Accounting stop and AcctStatusType=stop?

It's the same thing.

>Accounting stop and AcctStatusType=tunnel-stop....

Big. One is for accounting user sessions and the other for tunnel (which
carries user sessions) sessions.

>If i send accounting stop packets and AcctStatusType=tunnel-stop am
>receiving it as AcctStatusType=Stop only. why? any reason?

You NAS dictionaries are broken. Stop is coded as 2, while Tunnel-Stop is
coded as 10. Freeradius will decode attribute correctly. Your NAS is
encoding it wrongly. It's not sending Tunnel-Stop, but Stop instead.
