Description (partial)

When using Web Auth on the controller with Radius Accounting, the Class (IETF attribute 25) is sent in the Access-Accept from the Radius server but is failing 5% to be sent in the Accounting Request.  In this case the Accounting Request is being sent to another IP then the Access-Accept was received on.

The WLAN is also configured to send RADIUS Accounting packets to firewall where the same user group assignment is then used to control the users’ access to the internet, if user doesn't have a group assignment in the accounting packet the FW missess its policies and will either grant full internet access or deny all access.

Per the Radius RFC the class attribute should be sent unchanged from the Access-Accept to the Accounting-Request.
