 From a FreeRADIUS server point of view the NAS is the _client_!
Could it be that you meant the supplicant (the user or machine which wants to be authenticated) when youwrite "client"?

Pls. clarify "the client IP is unknown".
Is this the IP of the NAS which sends an authentication request to the FreeRADIUS server ?
Do you mean that you don't know through which configured NAS the authentication will take place?
Do you refer to the IP of a supplicant?
