Ok, I get it, I see all the warnings, but I need to make a change in
the dictionary file. I am able to do this in products like Radiator,
but I can't seem to get this done in the dnary.mdb file and have it
stick.

I need this:

Attribute #1 of Vendor 7000 should be Slipstream-Auth

This completely exists within Radiator as this:

VENDORATTR 7000 Slipstream-Auth 1 string

I have opened up dnary.mdb within Access, and added this variable (yes,
I backed up the old dnary.mdb) and saved it back, put it on the server
in place of the old file.. and it still doesn't find this attribute.

This is a "Must Have" feature. I've found three other RADIUS products
that I can use this with, I'd just prefer to not pay the $800 for
Radiator and instead make IAS do this.

Anyone have any tips on why adding this to the MDB file doesn't present
it as an option?

I should add, I need this to be an attribute so I can pass with a
"TRUE" or "False" variable.

As far as I know you can add VSAs using the IAS snapin. Its fairly simple.
Look up Vendor Specific attributes in the help file, it says how to do it.
You don't need to touch the mdb file. (In fact I'd get rid of the one you
edited and put the original back.)

The issue I run into is that if I use the VSA option within the snapin,
it puts them as Attribute 26, not 7000, which is what I need.

Am I missing something here?

Example from the help file:

-------------------------------
Look at the list to see whether your vendor-specific attribute is
already in the list of available RADIUS attributes. If it is,
double-click it, and then configure it as specified in your NAS
documentation. If the vendor-specific attribute is not in the list of
available RADIUS attributes:
Double-click Vendor-Specific, and then click Add.
Specify the vendor for your network access server.
To specify the NAS vendor by selecting the name from the list, click
Select from list, and then select the vendor of the NAS for which you
are configuring the VSA. If you are using Routing and Remote Access as
your NAS, click Microsoft. If the vendor is not listed, specify the
vendor by typing the vendor code.

To specify the NAS vendor by typing the vendor code, click Enter Vendor
Code and then type the vendor code in the space provided. (If you do
not know the vendor code for your NAS, see IETF RFC 1007 for a list of
SMI Network Management Private Enterprise Codes.)

Specify whether the attribute conforms to the RADIUS RFC VSA
specification. If you are not sure, see your NAS documentation.
---------------------------------

Which is fine and dandy except Microsoft's list doesn't have a Vendor
ATTR 7000 in it's lists (period).

Hi there --

Can you please restate in a nutshell what you are trying to accomplish? If
so I can forward your question to the product team. Thanks.

OK, we buy through a VISP (VirtualISP) for all of our employs so that
we can have them in the field for dialin. They point RADIUS for our
domain at our server. Which is fine.

When a user connects, I need to pass back this variable to their RADIUS
requester:

VENDOR ATTR 7000 Slipstream-Auth="true"

??

Thanks James. I'll eagerly await a response!!

Passing slipstream for Compression support is becoming more and more
important for those of us who use IAS in an dialin backend.
