These attributes are already allocated; you've "stolen" them from the 
main attribute space, and are probably having problems with dictionary 
precedence - IIRC there were changes in this area in FR2.

The correct thing to do is either use a valid, allocated attribute, or 
assign your own from a valid, allocated enterprise number that you own.

What is processing these attributes? Since you are using rp-pppoe, I 
suspect you are using an "ip-up" script and processing them in shell script?

In that case, find an allocated attribute with similar purpose, and use 
that. Use "grep" to search the dictionaries.
