you see other things - the Calling-Station-Id - that can be used to limit the
data.... you auth'd this person,yes?  if so, then you saw their real ID in the inner
part of the EAP - in which case, you can you that in the access accept packet so the
NAS knows what to tag eg accounting packet with.

and you are using 2.2.x to deliver services?  upgrade.
