All I want to do is let my customers login to the network, without them
having to run login scripts. If you connect to a RAS server, ie you have
Windows NT server with a modem attached to it and it is acting as a RAS
server, when you connect to that modem, you are not required to type your
username and password through a text based screen, you can simply get the
client to pass username and password through Windows dial-up networking. At
the moment my customers connect to a RAS server through the USR using PPTP,
they do not get a text based login screen. As far as I can see by using
RadiusNT and Emerald I have to set the USR settings to Dial In, and present
a text based login. I was hoping to emulate what I have setup using the RAS
server so there will be no disruption to the end users.
