When client get ip address from chilli dhcp, if you set chilli for authenticate mac address, chilli send the mac of client and
password that you set in chilli.conf to freeradius, the same way that send username and password, if the mac address is in radcheck
and the passward is the same in chilli.conf, freeradius reply for chilli an Autorized message, if not a reject message then chilli
show the loging page or homepage, depends of your chilli settings, so you can get all data that you want before add this mac address
like autorized user.
I'm not sure, in this point but i guess the user must be exists in database before freeradius start to authorize it, if you add some
user i guess you need restart freeradius to activate it.

Coova Chilli I'm hoping - if it finds that every user (by mac) is
authenticated (by pre-loading the mac into radcheck so that coova chilli
gets the OK each time).
So, I'm hoping, it'll be just like a captive portal except that the user's
will never be subjected to the pre-auth web pages
Unless I'm missing something by how Coova Chilli & freeradius are working
(I might be...)
