  What does that mean?  i.e. When you want a user rejected, what's in the Access-Request?

Keep in mind that this configuration has been in use since early 2000 and has various other support programs that depend on the output of the exec scripts.  Not pretty, but it worked.  Ideally, we will be moving from flat text files to SQL, but this will be in baby steps.

  This is typically what you should use databases for.  Create a table of User-Name, and VPI / VCI.  Then, check that the User-Name and VPI/VCI in the request match the User-Name and VPI/VCI in the database.
