Radius Auth with dial-inward-direct

We have all the POTS telephony on an AS5300 connected to our pre-paid switch (with a dial-inward-direct on the POTS dial peers). We use this to originate VOIP call legs.

I setup GNU-Radius in an attempt to AAA incoming VOIP calls. The accounting works, and Radius denies/logs attempts to login in when I configure it as the default method. However, it never, never tries to auth the h323 calls. I can see it in the various router debugs, but I can never get it to attempt an authorization request, I only see it creating start/stop records. (I'm testing with netmeeting, btw)

Does having the DID on the CAS side disable anything on the VOIP side? Do I need to have some sort of call application to handle incoming network calls, or can I not have it both ways? I need to allow or pre-auth POTS->VOIP (we have a billing solution for this) while accounting for VOIP-answered calls (to integrate into our billing).
