This Attribute is available to be sent by a proxy server to
another server when forwarding an Access-Request and MUST be
returned unmodified in the Access-Accept, Access-Reject or
Access-Challenge. When the proxy server receives the response to
its request, it MUST remove its own Proxy-State (the last Proxy-
State in the packet) before forwarding the response to the NAS.
If a Proxy-State Attribute is added to a packet when forwarding
the packet, the Proxy-State Attribute MUST be added after any
existing Proxy-State attributes.
The content of any Proxy-State other than the one added by the
current server should be treated as opaque octets and MUST NOT
affect operation of the protocol.
Usage of the Proxy-State Attribute is implementation dependent. A
description of its function is outside the scope of this
A summary of the Proxy-State Attribute format is shown below. The
fields are transmitted from left to right.

The String field is one or more octets. 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.
