Thanks for the tip. I tried this and the server does now start up.

When I send it a CoA however, I see no sign of the REST module being called:

(0) Received CoA-Request Id 217 from to length 38
(0)   User-Name = "adrian"
(0)   Calling-Station-Id = "aa-bb-cc"
(0) Sent CoA-ACK Id 217 from to length 0
(0) Finished request

Anything else I've missed?

Thanks again.

I haven't tried this, but it should work:

recv-coa {

this will call the 'authenticate' section of the rest module (you'll need another instance of the rest module, since you use auth already)

kind regards
