  RADIUS isn't magic.  Take the attributes Juniper needs, and send them in
an Access-Accept.  If it works, you're OK.  If not, ask Juniper what
attributes their NAS needs.

  Ask Juniper what their product needs.  They're really the best source of
information about their product.

  This isn't a FreeRADIUS question, unfortunately.  You can clearly edit the
config files correctly.  So the only question is what kind of attributes are
needed by the Juniper box.
