Is anyone else experiencing a problem using PAP with RadiusNT_60?

---We're running 2 Ascend MAX 4000s, 1 Cisco 2511, and a Pentium 133 with 64megabytes of RAM.... Windows NT 4.0 with MS Access 95.  We have a rathersmall number of users logging in at the same time.... anywhere from 1 tomaybe as high as 5 people logging in at the same time.

Here is the problem...

A customer will call with PAP... and it may authenticate them without anyproblems.

But, if they hang up and call right back using PAP... there is a prettygood chance that they will not be allowed by on.... ie... they will bedisconnected for failing to authenticate.

If they wait anywhere from 3 minutes to as long as 30 minutes, they will beallowed back on the system using PAP.

Typically this is what happens...

The user calls using PAP... and they are disconnected... they wait severalminutes... and call back with PAP and they will be let on.... the strangething is if they call with a post dial-up screen-- it will work everytime.

They can hang up after the post dial-up connection... and call back withPAP... and they will be disconnected. If they try again with the postdial-up screen, they will be let on... authenticated without anyproblems... everytime.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...
