Hey. Thanks for your quick reply,

The NAS is OpenVPN. Last I check, it only sends a username, a password, 
the NAS indentifier and the Service Type. They are identical though, 
even the Service-Type.
If you or someone else have experience with FreeRADIUS and OpenVPN, can 
you point me to the right direction? The guy at live chat support in 
OpenVPN weren't very helpful.

Well, I am going to do that or store them in a file if there is no other 
choice. Would you kindly tell me if there's a easy way or do I have to 
write a script (Shell or Perl) to manually do this?
