Well, I have just spent quite some time testing the Prefix and Suffix code, and
I am happy to report that it does work correctly.

I did however discover that the order of the user Check items is important and
therein lies your problem - the "Prefix = U" must appear *before* the "AuthType
= System", otherwise the userid *including* the "U" is checked.

Therefore you should have something this:

DEFAULT Prefix = U, Auth-Type = System, Client-Id = pm1
        Service-Type = Login-User,
        Login-IP-Host = ice.triode.net.au,
        Login-Service = Rlogin,
        Framed-IP-Address =

This will check for "U" as the first character of a login, strip it off and
check the remaining string according to "AuthType = System", as well as
checking that the request came from "pm1".

If all of the above, it will reply with the remaining Reply items (I am not
certain that the "Framed-IP-Address" is relevant in this case).

We have modified the reference manual to reflect the correct order.

thanks for your help with this - let us know how you get on...
