Hi Arran,

Thanks for the reply. I've grepped the wiki and mailing list archives
and could not answer the following:

What do I change in the nas table (in the database) to mark the
network boxes as "special devices"? I see the schema as:

nasname VARCHAR(128) NOT NULL,
shortname VARCHAR(32) NOT NULL,
type VARCHAR(30) NOT NULL DEFAULT 'other',
ports int4,
secret VARCHAR(60) NOT NULL,
server VARCHAR(64),
community VARCHAR(50),
description VARCHAR(200)

Is it the "server" field? If so, could you also briefly explain how to
apply that to group matching? (I have added users to groups using the
usergroup table, but haven't touched the radgroupcheck/reply yet.)

Thanks for any help!
