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
on comp.os.linux.networking.
