  You've changed the default configuration to require NAS-Identifier... in a situation where the NAS doesn't send NAS-Identifier.

  Why?  That doesn't make any sense.

  Add it with what value?  Any value you use can only be derived from existing attributes in the packet.  So why not use the attributes that *exist*, instead of one that doesn't exist?

 If you want to create a NAS-Identifier attribute, see "man unlang".  There are tons of documentation files and examples showing you how to create attributes.
