  That's what you told it to send.

  No.  You told radclient to send an ASCII string composed of the
characters "0" and "1".  That's what it did.

  The Cisco-Command-Code attribute is defined to be a printable string.
 So sending a hex byte of 0x01 is probably not what you want.

  But... it should be possible.  Just do:

 Cisco-Command-Code = 0x01

$ man unlang


$ man users

  It's the same format.
