  • RFC 2865 allows a Radius message to contain the maximum of 4096 bytes, which includes a header of 20 bytes.

  • So, it is expected behavior, when the Steel Belted Radius server rejects the authentication with the Send packet aborted: would be too long error message, when the return-list attribute contains more than 4075 bytes.
