Ascend-PPP should not be needed for anything. We've got 3 Maxes (4004,
4048, 4002) and have people dialing into all of them with dynamic IPs as
well as static without any problems. DNS IP addresses are dynamically
assigned directly by the Maxes. Here are sample radius settings:

Standard PPP connection:
User-Service: Framed-User
Framed-Protocol: PPP
Ascend-Maximum-Time: 43200 (optional)
Ascend-Idle-Limit: 1200 (optional)

Static IP PPP connection:
User-Service: Framed-User
Framed-Protocol: PPP
Ascend-Maximum-Time: 43200 (optional)
Ascend-Idle-Limit: 1200 (optional)

Make sure that your routing is set correctly in the Max:
Ethernet / Static Rtes

Dynamic DNS assignment:
Ethernet / Mod Config / DNS
