Hi Fajar

Thank you very much for your time.

I'm using CentOS so I'll try with the latest 2.1.x from git

The problem which bothers me is that I need more than classic ip-mac 
pairing. Beside the IP address I need to return a few other parameters 
to cable modems/MTA.

For example ISC DHCP config for regular modems is:

host blaBlaBla {
         filename "";
         hardware ethernet 00:cc:ab:11:cc:22;

As you can see, I'm returning the IP address and the name for config file.

Is this possible with FreeRadius DHCP ?

ISC DHCP can't cooperate with database (maybe omapi but I hate it)

Best regards
