I've noticed that the radius accounting start message is generated even 
the client is NOT authenticated.
Would it not have much more sense to generate this only if the client is 
successfully authenticated (maybe
it would make sense to use 1 more messages Acct-Status-Type =Auth-login 
(and maybe Auth-fail) and
if succ. authenticated to use the Acct-Status-Type = Start))

What do you thing?

BTW: Is there any reason why not to use the ipname or ipadress in 
User-Name instead of MAC which
is already in the Calling-Station-Id field?
