It needs to support MP, not necessarily MPP (MP+):

MP = Multilink Protocol (multichannel PPP connections)
MPP (MP+) = Multilink Protocol Plus and is something specific to Ascend
products; it's based on MP, but takes it a step or two further.

You also have to go into RadiusNT Admin and make sure that Variable Logins
are checked along with Concurrent Logins (something like that I think--I'm
at home now and can't remember the other option). We're using Ascend Maxes
here, so I have no idea what (if anything) needs to be adjusted in your NAS.
