Thanks, I will browse through the examples and see if I could get it 
work. Moreover, I was looking through old archive emails related to 
"accounting response" and I found repetitively you mentioned that 
sending attribute values in accounting response is not a good idea [for 
compatibility purpose] even though RFC does not specificity bars it. 
Being a novice in RADIUS I am not aware of other ways to pull these 
information [such as Acct-Terminate-Cause (with reason 
code),Acct-Session-Time and other attribute values ] from the FreeRADIUS 
server, if I want to make my Linux client(NAS) to be compatible across 
different RADIUS servers [FreeRADIUS and other RADIUS servers]
