The server doesn't support Disconnect-Request. And if it did, it
would be on a separate port, not 1812.
The main problem with Disconnect-Request is that all Access-Accept's
have to contain a State attribute. That state has to be unique to the
server. That state has to be maintained across server re-starts. The
state has to be kept in conjunction with a bunch of other data.
And that's not even getting into the reverse proxying nightmare.
And that's not even getting into the fact that many NASes don't
For local use of Disconnect-Request, it's easiest to have the server
log information to an SQL table, and then query the SQL table for the
necessary data, and run radclient using it. Sending the server a
Disconnect-Request is probably not that useful...
Can I ask what you're trying to do with Disconnect-Request, and why
you're sending it to the server?
