Hi all!

I have been trying to read up on MAC authentication and implementing 
that into a sql database. The MAC authentication with a userfile was no 
problem. But i
hit the wall when i wanted to use a database instead of text file. Is 
there any good HOWTO's out there on this one?

The configuration of the intended network.

Radius server--->wifi-routers with MAC auth--->clients

The reason for this MAC authentication is for engineers to have access 
to internet on sites we have equipment on. But not the users of the 
equipment. And the
reason for wanting to implement sql database to store MAC addresses in, 
is to make it easier for admins to edit and that we want to implement 
other software to also use the info for our engineers.
