  If you're comparing attributes, the numbers are the same type as the attribute:

	if (NAS-Port == 0) {

0  is type of NAS-Port, or 32-bit integer

	if (NAS-Port == 4294967298) {

 Won't work, as the number is too big to fit into NAS-Port.

  i.e. you can probably do it, but it doesn't make sense, because the check will always fail.
