Sorry for following-up the second time. When I used the MAX4000 to
dial-up, the following message show in -x15:

NAS-Identifier =
NAS-Port = 20102
State = ""
Frame-Address =
Acct-Session-Id = "215052"
Challenge-Response = "\001\306\030\2277\276."S4U\350N\242*\311\360"
Decrypted Password: (some funny ASCII characters)
Allocating Statement...

SQL Statement: Select DateAdd('d', ma.extension, maExpireDate), etc.

Freeing SQL Statement...
LOG: User: kahsing Not found

User: kahsing Not found
Sending Reject of id 204 to a0e0202 (MAX4000)

Response Time: 641


Could it be CHAP? I set the MAX to use either CHAP or PAP. Thanks.
