Hi, folks.

My scenario has a Cisco NAS authenticating in a Debian lenny running 
FreeRADIUS (which is using the /etc/passwd method).

I must to give access to some users just in a specific NASes.

I noticed that, even if I haven't the entry in clients.conf file for my 
NAS, like that...

client {
         secret          = test
         shortname       = edge

...I am able to access my device.

So I understand that this clients.conf isn't useful in that scenario.

Am I right?
