Standard PPP. Have you gone through any PPP debugging procedure, as
docuemented with the PPP distro? If it's getting through the
authentication, you should get a Radius authentication message in your
message log (assuming you've got a similar PPPD setup to mine, which
is stock redhat with debugging enabled).
Now, see, you've still not given specifics. That Raymond chap might be
onto something with telling people /how to ask a question/. What, for
example, is the PPP error? What distro of Linux? What version of PPP?
It's far easier to answer your question if you give pertinent information.
