  Then it's not doing RADIUS, and telling it to send packets to a RADIUS
server is wrong.

  As I said, I have no idea what that means.

  You are coming into a RADIUS mailing list, and using terminology that
is specific to a particular product from a particular vendor.  I've
never used that product from that vendor.  Using that terminology here
is confusing an unnecessary.

  If you think you can create a static string to simulate RADIUS... it
doesn't work that way.

  The web site is full of documentation.  It contains copies of the
RADIUS specifications, which explain the protocol in detail.

  Perhaps you read the documentation that comes with the server, and the
FAQ.  It contains examples of using test programs.
