"No. The HP switch does not care that FreeRADIUS displayed (but later
encoded correctly) your hex string as an integer.
It does care that you don't seem to understand how to convert decimal
numbers to hex and are actually specifying VLAN 18 tagged, which
probably doesn't exist if you're getting errors.
You want 0x3100000C for VLAN 12 tagged."
I can't believe I did that! How stupid of me to not actually convert
the VLAN number! I just got thrown when I saw the base 16 to base 10
conversion and got stuck on that..
Serves me right for trying to figure these things out after mid night
when I should have been sleeping..
