As long as you are sending the Framed-Address attribute for a NAS
assigned IP (and not a specific one), RadiusNT has nothing to do with
assigning the IP. You might check your POOL size and make sure its
large enough, though. I'm not sure what the PM3 does if it doesn't
have any un-used IPs in the pool available to assign.
