Question :

I'd like to understand why the Policy Server print
the message "Invalid session ip" in an isAuthorized call.

Answer :

The Authorization process validates the session data from
the SessionSpec, which contains the Client IP.
The Policy Server always compare the Client IP from the
SessionSpec with the one given by the Attribute 208;

In Web Agent, we override this IP validation by setting the
ACO parameter TransientIPCheck="NO".

In SDK code, you need to pass the Client IP starting with a
"* " as for example "*" in the code function;
