The exact attribute requirements depends on your NAS (see its
documentation).  You usually need some attribute identifying the
session.  A user may have multiple sessions.

E.g. on an ERX you'll use either Acct-Session-Id or Framed-IP-Address to
specify the session.  User-Name is optional, but AFAIK it must match if
