The rest module is just amodule that can run in different sections by calling an externalprocess/server via a RESTful API to do something. The added addsa Cleartext-Password := testing123 to the control map, this could beused in the authorize section of a server, where for example the papmodule could compare the passwords in authenticate section. A bitcomparable to a lookup in a database to find the plaintext password.I've really got no idea how this would be related to iptv boxes thatdon't use pppoe. To me this sounds a bit like you heard about a conceptand now try to retrofit that concept to some completely unrelated problem.-- Herwin Weststrate-List info/subscribe/unsubscribe? See
