vwlan radius requests in external radius

Hello all,

We are using External Radius Authentication with external redirection portal for landing/welcome page. ( This occurs in both 2.8.0 version and 3.0.0 )

We have noticed that Called-Station-ID attribute is not the same in Radius Access-Request and Accounting-Request Messages. Called-Station-ID should be common for both in order to help us correlate a user during auth and acct. In Access-Request this attribute consist of AP MAC-Address and SSID. In Accounting-Request consists only from the AP MAC-address. It should the same in both packets.

Below you can find some relevant logs from radius server.

Is this a bug ? should we issue a feature request ?

Calling station ID different in the special character which discriminates the ( in auth is "-" and in acct is ":# )
