Reading the documentation I am still at a loss. I am familiar on how to do
this with Cisco ACS, but looking to do it now with free radius. I now have
it working if I check the Cisco-avpair under the user in dalo Radius
(Cisco-avpair =~ .*SSID$) . Is there a way to configure this so i dont have
to keep typing that attribute under every user? I thought the group would
work, but from what you are saying it sounds like it wouldnt. I have tried
saying if it doesnt match the above regex then the Radgroupreply says (
Auth-Typ := Reject)

Thank you for your time.
