Just to add, I think you should define a virtual server with a default 
virtual_server in the listen {} section, then for your specific NAS that 
needs special policy/authn, simply specify a different virtual_server in 
the client {} section

I also wanted to add that you'll find all the information you need here (but my @#°@¦§¬ mail
