Symptoms

The Internet Authentication Service Properties profile tab allows administrators to add vendor-specific attributes. When you try to add the Ascend-Data-Filter attribute, you are prompted for the attribute value. The correct value should look like the following:
ip in forward dstip 123.123.123.123/22
However, when you type the forward slash (/), the system beeps and will not allow you to enter this character.

Cause

The attribute Abinary format is incorrectly prohibiting the forward slash character.
