IssueACE/Server Radius proxy authentication fails.
When trying to authenticate via RADIUS from a remote Server acting as Proxy Server to the ACE/Server, and when using an attribute that contains more than 128 bytes of data, the ACE/radius server crashes, and we fail to complete the packet request.

The RFC allows a MAX value of 253 bytes for attributes.
ResolutionA possible workaround is to split the attributes into two separate attributes that contain less than 128 bytes worth of data.

This has been resolved in ACE/Server version 5.0.
