Radiusmon only sending 2 byte IP address?
I'm running Nocol to check on a Radiator (http://www.open.com.au/) radius server. I'm crashing it on every check with the error: Bad arg length for Socket::inet_ntoa, length is 2, should be 4 at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/Radius/Radius.pm line 131. The author of Radiator has informed me of the following: "This is a problem caused by badly formed requests from your NAS. You will find that one of the IP addresses in the request has only 2 bytes in the value instead of 4." Another user wrote: "I am having the same problems, repeatable every time. ... This is caused by a program radiusmon - part of nocol 4.2.1 (http://www.netplex-tech.com/software/nocol)" This does appear to be the case. I'm not a C programmer, so I don't even know where to start looking for the problem in the radiusmon. One of the responses radiusmon is sending must have a badly formed IP address. I can fix radiator with a patch that ignores the bad IP address, but I'd rather fix radiusmon. Is this a known problem, and is there a patch for it? Thanks!
