Just to close up this OT thread (with with y'all have been very patient):
+ Initial problem: Company sold, new NOC staff, new servers and
software. They broke the authentication database, neither knew
(nor believed, when I told them) that they'd done so. Resolved.
Windoes now can connect.
+ Secondary problem: "Out of the box" PPP/dialup server, no single
person knows anything about server config, some "know" things that
are counterfactual. Much hacking, consulting on-line gurus.
Resolved: The invocation of pppd, for this server, must *not*
contain the option "escape FF" which previously was either
required or at least acceptable. Linux can now connect.
Everything's working again, thanks to y'all and Old Guy
