Ok. Now we are starting to get somewhere. :)

You should be able to set the ports to Login/Network. Even though
the USR will provide a login prompt, it will still listen for PPP
and if LCP is requested from the dialup side (DUN) it will auth
via PAP, rather than a script.

Either authentication (PAP/login) will be authed to RadiusNT and
get the user on. This is the normal way the USR authenticates.
