I'm guessing your not expecting radtest to carry on running in the background
and generate accounting traffic right? and you're just using it for testing?

This functionality is highly NAS dependent, not all NAS support it as it's
not required behaviour by any of the RADIUS rfcs. Consult the manuals for your
NAS to check it is supported, and if that fails contact their support team
and raise a feature request.

I'm not sure which you're returning Acct-Status-Type in an Access-Accept, or
Calling-Station-ID it is not correct/appropriate to insert them into the reply.
