I've attached a copy of their dictionary file.  For you to peruse.  Thank you for your other feedback.  Once I can get the reply attributes passing back from the flat file I'll switch back over to the database and try with the Cleartext-Password changed to User-Password.

Thanks much for your assistance!

Looks like there are Cambium-Canopy and Motorol-Canopy attributes in
circulation. This might be the reason why you see unexpected attributes.

If you can pass me the definitions of the Cambium/Motorola/Canopy
attributes you have with VENDOR id, attribute names, codes and types
I'll see how well they match Radiator dictionary.

In addition to this, documentation of what the devices expect would be
needed to know which attributes to return.

I'm sure this gets solved but sometimes the definitions from different
sources are not as clear or consistently named as they could.
