Best way to cope with multiple SSIDs and MAC auth

Hi - thanks for the reply
  I have a relatively new version of IOS and I can't see the attribute coming through, either on freeradius or using the "debug radius" command on the AP. I wonder if it's something you have to set in the AP that's non default.
As an aside, I wonder if there's an internal freeradius attribute that can tell me the port number that an auth request comes through on? If I use the radtest program, I see the NAS-Port being set to 1812, but the Aps don't do this - the NAS-Port attribute is often a random number, not the destination port number..

yes, it does - the attribute will depend on model and IOS version - but if you run the server in full debug mode then you will see the attribute arrive in the access-request - with the SSID you are looking for present.
