Freeradius 3.0.16 DHCP static IP assignment

Hi Allan,

Thanks for your quick response!
Yes I've seen them, but i'm a bit struggling with them, I understand that
if you want to use ippool-dhcp you'll need to create a separate table
(ippool) where the server will look up the data to assign the static IP's.
But what I would love to use is the same tables as Radius, eg: radreply,
radcheck, etc. In the guide they where changing the settings in the
dialup.conf to use the Client-MAC-Address as User-Name so you can put the
MAC addresses in radreply, radcheck and radusergroup to authenticate the
devices and assign them a static IP.

Is this also possible in V3 and is there some sort of guide which could
help me to configure it correctly?

Many thanks!
