Some network address attributes have IP only some have IP and port.
Port numbers were not added until an OES Linux server was added into the tree.


When a user authenticates to a OES Linux server, the network address is populated with the IP address and port. This is different from the traditinal authentication to a NetWare server. The port number is not populated in that case.
This behavior is by design.
