Translate characters

Hello dear Freeradius friends!

Im authenticating users by NAS-Port-Id by following format:
”1/1/4:1001.129”. In the scenario im using Service Router --> Freeradius -->
Cisco ACS --> Active Directory.  The problem is that Active directory cannot
use “/” and “:” in the logon filed of the user when im trying to
authenticate users. 

Is there anything I can do in the freeradius to change the characters to
different ones? Example: To make “/” as “-“ and “:” as “_”. So the
NAS-Port-ID would look like “1-1-4_1001.129” instead. Is it possible to
translate characters in Freeradius? If possible, how do i make it?

Best regards, Badstuber.
