Check to see if the DSL RADIUS client returns anything special/different
than the dialups do. For example, NAS-Port-Type, etc. Also, you could
put a RadCheck attribute of the NASIdentifier of the DSL box (or
its returning as a NAS-Identifier) to prevent the user from logging onto
another box. That way if the user tries to log into a PPP client, the
NAS-Identifier wouldn't match the DSL RADIUS client's NAS-Identifier,
RadiusNT would reject the login.
