Hi Chris,

I looked into that and it seems the attr plugin only supports IP
addresses and subnets as values (i.e. no strings or ints).  The attr-sql
plugin [1] supports more types, so that might be worth a try to avoid
having to change the code.

No, the changes to pluto look fine.  Whether the value is correct I
don't know, but racoon at least uses the same.

Are you sure the iPhone actually supports this attribute?  I'm not sure
but I suppose Apple uses racoon in iOS, which actually ignores this
attribute when used as client.  At least by default, could be that they
somehow added support for it, though.
