Hi Ive got a micro ISP with 50 clients running on pppoe and freeradius for
authenication, each client has a username and password. When a customer
dials through his winbox to create pppoe connection the pppoe server on the
server loads to do the authenication. What I want to do now is the
I want to authenicate based on mac address and i do not want to use pppoe everybody plugging in a network cable into my switch will have
immediate internet access only if I have registered his mac address for him
previously, otherwise everybody plugging his network cable into my swithces
will have access to my internet connection. I mean I need something like the
mac address filtering used in squid ...where only registered mac address are
allowed through the proxy..any hints suggestions and/or tutorials are

With Regards Ali Jawad
