mac address format

Hello all,

I'm running FreeRADIUS Version 2.1.5 (installed in 2009) configured
to use Mac auth. Runs well indeed, but a brand new Cisco wireless
controler is a bit disturbing i.e. Calling-Station mac address is not
as usual. Following is my mac-authorized file :

062f68c7dcc2 Auth-type := Accept, User-Password == "062f68c7dcc2"

but now the stations controlled by the new Cisco appears as follows


So my first idea was to duplicate entries in the authorized file included
within my conf, unfortunantely it does not run.

So, is there a simple way to force radiusd to accept different mac address format ?

Sorry if this is a FAQ, of course I've not changed anything within my conf
since 2009 !

Any help would be appreciated.
