What makes you think that you setup a user and restricted it to a 
specific NAS?

You can restrict users from a pppoe server by using mac filters if your 
environment supports that. However, that isnt a support question.

I would recommend you design your environment so that whatever pppoe NAS 
your users connect to things work correctly. See "ospf"
