Slightly off topic... But:

I don't know about radius, but on Ascend, there is a considerable
difference. MPP must be used for any multilink connection. PPP will only
allow one connection.

There is another problem involved with Ascend to Livingston Connections.
An ascend dialing into a PM3, the ascend must have MPP turned on to do a
multilink session. Unfortunately, the PM3 does not support the MPP
protocol fully. I will allow an inital 2 channel connection, but if one
channel drops, the ascend will no be able to pick up the second channel
again unless both channels are dropped. Ascend says they will not support
BACP and Livingston says no to MPP. Now that they are both owned by
Lucent, we'll see.
