'lo all.

Been playing with m0n0wall for a few months now and we've finally gotten 
to a point where we've ditched our dialups so we can migrate from 
Smoothwall to m0n0wall.  One of the features I've been playing with in 
particular is the PPTP server.  We currently have a poptop box doing 
that job but I want to distribute the users across the various offices 
using the m0n0walls I intend to put in.

In a related project, I'm building a centralised user management 
database and exposing the relevant bits via. freeradius and I want to 
use this to authenticate everyone against.  Now the m0n0 -> RADIUS bit 
authenticates fine, but it seems to be discarding most of the attributes 
the freeradius box is giving it, most importantly the DNS servers 
(MS-PRIMARY-DNS etc.) which makes name resolution a bit problematic.

I'm not going to be able to make a manual changes on every users dialin 
so I'm kinda hoping someone else has had a go at this and I've just not 
spotted it in the archives.

Thanks for any ideas (an m0n0 in general...)
