  I don't know what you mean by that.  The Access-Accept can contain an
IPv6 prefix.  The prefix is valid only for as long as the session is
active.  It is NOT a permanently allocated static IP.

  No.  This is for connecting the user to a machine.  It is not for
assigning an IP address to a machine.

  See Login-Service, and Login-TCP-Port.

  The Login-* attributes are about connecting a dial-in user directly to
an <ip/port> pair.
