I responded to you about this last night. As I mentioned I am not that fluent
in PPTP and have little experience with USR gear.

I don't understand why you can't just do the same? The PPTP is most likely
just another value for Framed-Protocol. I'm not sure what attribute default
host matches to, though. It could be a VSA, as I noted earlier, or it could
be something like Login-Host. What does radlogin show for the authentication
againt the USR RADIUS server?
