you just need to deal with the REALM component...many ways to
do this...but I would personally use unlang...  eg in your 
virtual-server configuration, in authorize, put

if("%{User-Name}" =~ /\\/i) {
	update control {
		Proxy-To-Realm := 'nps'

then, add 'nps' to your proxy.conf file as you have DEFAULT

you could also add another check for if its MAC if you want belt-and-braces
(check for the correct MAC format and then sent to local or null realm.)

you dont need those 2 entriess....remove LOCAL and remove nostrip

you dont need Auth-Type. the server has intelligence.

you certainly dont want User-Password. it should read

Cleartext-Password := "NOPASSWORD"
