  It doesn't matter what the other RADIUS servers do.

  And posting the same information again isn't useful.

  Your device is broken.

  See the device documentation for which attributes it needs in the Access-Accept.  Then, configure FreeRADIUS to send those attributes.

  Or, look at the RADIUS packets coming out of the other RADIUS server.  See which attributes it sends.  Then, configure FreeRADIUS to send those attributes.

  It shouldn't be difficult.

  I have no idea what that means.

  FreeRADIUS sends an Access-Accept.  That means it's working properly.

  If you want FreeRADUUS to send different attributes in the reply, then configure it send different attributes in the reply.
