  <sigh>  What I said was very clear.  I said to change ONE thing.  The PROXY.  I didn’t say to revert a change.

  I didn’t ask for that.  I asked for the DEBUG OUTPUT.

  Paying attention would be nice.  Following instructions would be better.

  NO.  I said that the suffix module DOES NOT DO PROXYING.

  Please pay attention.

I have fairly high request logging turned up at the moment, and I can try to set up my debug environment with a test case that could replicate the issue if necessary.

  If only there was a free “radius client” tool which would let you send test packets.

  If only it was possible to create a test configuration *independent* of the live configuration, where test packets could be sent.

  Yes, I find this frustrating.  I’m trying to help you, and you’re making it as difficult as possible.
