If I removed the Auth-Type part would it process it for all requests for testing purposes?

okay - thats a CHECK item - if the Auth-Type = ntlm_auth, followed
by a load of reply items.....  which look like standard VLAN override
values (eg that Cisco use)

this will work if the 'type' is what you think it the server in debug
mode and see what it the output you will see if your 'users' file
entry is doing anything...

we use PERL code to do this work rather than users file - as it can be called 
where and when we want it called, with lots of wrappers/code around to deal with
correct type of user etc
