Well here is a couple things to try. In the portmaster, do a
"set assigned". This sets the pool of addresses to be
assigned to users at dial-in time. Set Windows 95 to use server assigned
IP address in dial up networking. In Radius/Emerald, just use a basic
configuration for your user accounts, like
User-Service - Framed-User
Framed-Protocol - PPP
