Thanks Ivan !

With huntgroup it works perfectly, now I am searching to manage my huntgroup whith ldap, no longer with the file huntgroup.

Each users have the primitive radiusHuntgroupName, but I want to define my huntgroup in ldap, is it possible you think ?

Well, if user is going to have only one value for NAS IP, then you don't
need checkval - just map appropriate attribute as check item in
raddb/ldap.attrmap. If he should be allowed on several devices it might be
better to use huntgroups/sqlhuntgroups - as long as there are not too many

Same applies to mac address - if user can use only one there is no need to
use checkval.
