> Thanks! I understood the logic, but I tought there was an integrated way to do so. I think I will simply call a python script to do the verification.

There is. You can use unlang[1] to do some of this, as well as using the xlat engine, i.e. "%{sql:SELECT username from ...}"[2]


Do note though that the actual account linking to the MAC address probably should *not* be done in FreeRADIUS...
