Re: Could it be possible to extend PPPoE Error code?

Hello Joe -

There is a RADIUS "Reply-Message" reply attribute that can be used to send any message you wish in an Access-Reject. However the display of whatever is sent in the "Reply-Message" is up to your NAS equipment and/or connecting client device. In my experience there are almost no client devices that actually display the "Reply-Message", but as always YMMV.

  We provide broadband access by ADSL. The cucurrent
session number and access port is controled by radius
server. E.g. an PPPoE account can ONLY be used with a
designated access port, and current session of that
account is limited to 3 or 5.

   If a subscriber dials with a username.  mismatching
username and password, illegal access port and
exceeding current session number  reach the same error
code "691" on subscriber's computer.

    We want to identify the exact reason for customer
complaint. So, it that possible to extend radius
server and Broadband Access Server ( Juniper E series)
to echo different error code for different reason.
  Error code 691 for wrong password
  Error code  851 for wrong access port
  Error code 852  for exceeding limit of concurrent
session number
