So sorry... yes, I did invert the names. It was pam_ncp I had 
working with ppp. I had pam_nw_auth working for other services, 
but never got it to work with ppp. Perhaps it has been updated as 

Sorry for the confusion. It was several months ago that I did the 
testing, and we wound up setting up a Livingston Portmaster as our 
dial-up server. Incidentally, you can download a nlm from Novell's 
web site that allows a netware server to act as a Radius server. 
That's what we use to do authentication for our portmaster. Might 
be another option for you.

If anyone does the testing with the new libncp and NDS, I'd like to 
hear the results.
