This value is used to provide a message to the client in response to another packet. It is often found in Access-Accept messages to provide a welcome message, an error message, or other information to the user.

It is not prudent for an administrator to bet on the end user seeing whatever message is sent in the Reply-Message attribute. Specific consumer/client software may ignore the attribute or present its own notification to the user based on the packet in which this attribute is found.
