Yes, the way their system works is not the way that I would have set it 
up. They did in that seemingly strange way because they don't want to 
require the use of RADIUS - if RADIUS is not used with their software, a 
script runs on the DHCP server that passes the IP and MAC to the billing 
system as parameters in an HTTP GET request whenever a lease is created 
or deleted.
