Is it printed out when you run FR in debug log? i.e. does the nas send
the attribute, and FR correctly receive/decode it?

1812 -> auth, 1813 -> acct.

Don't know about ngrep, but it should work with

tcpdump -vv -i eth0 udp and portrange 1812-1813

... then again, debug mode would print the packets and decoded
attributes and values, making it easier to troubleshoot, so you should
use that instead/as well.
