Actually, you should have:

User-Service = Framed-User
Framed-Protocol = PPP
Framed-Address =

In most cases you should NOT have Framed-Routing. This is telling the
to send RIP information to the PPP client, which in almost all cases the
PPP client isn't going to hear and is a waste of bandwidth.

Framed-Compression is for like Stac, MS-Stac, etc. Most NASes don't
these. Some do (like the Ascend). I would still be curious why
caused a problem. What is it set to?

Send me a private mail, and I will let you try 1.19.0. This isn't an
open invitation to everyone else. :(
