      Access-Request packet.

      32 for NAS-Identifier.


      >= 3String

      The String field is one or more octets, and should be unique to
      the NAS within the scope of the RADIUS server.  For example, a
      fully qualified domain name would be suitable as a NAS-Identifier.

      The actual format of the information is site or application
      specific, and a robust implementation SHOULD support the field as
      undistinguished octets.

      The codification of the range of allowed usage of this field is
      outside the scope of this specification.
