  That's good...

  To do WHAT "authorization stuff"?

  The short answer is: read your NAS documentation to see what RADIUS attributes it takes.  Then, configure FreeRADIUS to send those attributes.

  We have no idea what NAS you're using, so we can't help.  And no, don't tell us which make / model of the NAS you're using.  That doesn't help.  We don't keep lists of vendor documentation, because the vendors already do that.  Just look at the vendor documentation sites.
