What does MPP represent?
Big Book, ISP 1-11 mentions
MP = Multilink PPP
MP+ (multilink Protocol Plus, Ascends Proprietary)
Max T1/PRI 5.0A Release Notes, Page 24
Max T1/PRI 5.0A Release Notes, Page 150
Refers to MPP and Multi-channel MP & MP+ calls

Is MPP the same as MP+?

I'm assuming you want to use MPP because the caller dialing in is using an
Ascend Pipeline ?

Contrary to popular belief, MPP does not stand for multilink-PPP. I've
never had any problems getting multilink working using type=PPP in the
RADIUS profile. You might also want to try adding in an
Ascend-Maximum-Channels =2 in the profile in case it's defaulting to 1 B
channel only for whatever reason.

Also, if you have multiple Max4000's, make sure Stacking is turned on in
the Ethernet settings to allow multiple B channels to connect across
multiple maxes.

MPP assigned. When I add the users into "Ethernet" Connections, there is
not a problem, but when I try to have the profile in the Radius use MPP,
the account is rejected each time. Any idea's?
