Does an AR enabled with L2TP support RADIUS authentication

The L2TP Access Concentrator (LAC) and L2TP Network Server (LNS) support the RADIUS authentication (remote authentication) function to authenticate remote users.
PPP sessions are initiated by user devices and received by the LNS. After being authenticated by the LNS, remote users successfully set up PPP sessions with the LNS and can access resources in the enterprise headquarters. As the other endpoint of an L2TP tunnel, the LNS is a peer device of the LAC, and sets up an L2TP tunnel with the LAC. Additionally, the LNS is the logical termination point of a PPP session; therefore, the PPP client (user device) and the LNS establish a virtual point-to-point link.
An LAC provides PPP and L2TP processing capabilities on the packet switched network. The LAC establishes an L2TP connection with the LNS based on the user name or domain name in PPP packets so that PPP frames can be transmitted to the LNS.
