  Some amount of paying attention would be useful.

  When the accounting section is being run, there is no reply:Packet-Type yet.  The server just received the request.  There is only a request:Packet-Type.

  Plus, why are you logging the *reply* when the server just received a request?  I'm presuming that you want to log the *request*.  In which case, *reading* the configuration would be useful.

  Plus, the only kind of reply to an Accounting-Request packet is an Accounting-Response packet.
