  Very well, thank you. :)

  But really... packet src/dst ip/port, plus RADIUS code && Id.
Proxy-State isn't needed.

> 2) Since it is Packet Identifier has only 1 byte (0-254), it can only handle 255 requests (received by NAS and sent to remote hosts via Proxy) at a time? Or only handle 255 requests per NAS or remote host?

  No.  It opens multiple source ports.
