You should realize that a Framed-Address of allows
the user to request an IP Address. Not necesarrily a good option
to use. From the RFC:

The Address field is four octets. The value 0xFFFFFFFF indicates
that the NAS should allow the user to select an address (e.g.
Negotiated). The value 0xFFFFFFFE indicates that the NAS should
select an address for the user (e.g. Assigned from a pool of
addresses kept by the NAS). Other valid values indicate that the
NAS should use that value as the user's IP address.

I actually have no idea what would do. I would reject the
auth packet (as an invalid IP Address) is I were the NAS, though.
