Hi Alan,

thanks for these tips.
3.0.4 was at the repo of RHEL7, so I used it. But with your advice I'll 
compile the latest 3.1.X version.
Mr Paffrath at the DFN, responsible for the Radius servers, is just in 
vacation. So I try to collect as much information as possible to 
question him, when he's back.
With RadSec I'm not shure what I need, it should just function with the 
DFN servers ;) I'll see ...

documentation is always historical.... that was probably based
on early implementations.....

3.0.4 is old and creaky, containing many random bugs.   I would 
that you use the recent 3.1.x - thus getting yourself ready for the
3.2.x stable release and having all latest features but not bleeding
edge 4.x stuff.    if you must have 3.0.x then use 3.0.11 (or 3.0.12
when that slips out) - but be aware that it'll be legacy release
when 3.2 arrives.

what RADSEC features do you want?  if you chat with your NRO in DFN 
give you their there are other things they may expect
or wnat you to do....
