[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: radiusclient1
Version: 0.3.2-8
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

On an amd64 (SUN V20z) Authentication against an  Radius Server fails, because
the Attribute Value Pairs sending to the Server are to big. This is due the
64bit System. 

With the attached Patch, UINT4 and INT4 (defined in radiusclient.h) is 
defined as int not as long, so the header AVP Fields are within
the specification.

I would like to see the attached patch included in the Debian Package, 
because we use some Servers which are 64bit aware.
