  That is not an appropriate response.

  RADIUS uses attributes.  If you're not aware of this, then that's a major problem.

  radclient / radtest sends attributes.  The server receives attributes.  The server ONLY receives what radclient sends.  If you want the server to receive a Calling-Station-Id attribute, you MUST make radclient send it.

  Honestly, I don't see what the problem is.  I explained this in one of the earlier messages in this thread.  Go back and read it.
