Thanks Ben.

Let's start with the simple DHCP with statically assignment.
Can you share me some details on this?

I might be able to help you but I would first need to know a bit more
about how you want it to work.

DHCP servers generally either give out addresses dynamically or
statically (e.g based on a MAC address or Option 82 value) and
sometimes a mixture of both. If you want to do dynamic addressing then
you need to think about where you will strore the leases. Probably you
would strore them in a database of some sort but the thing is that
FreeRADIUS supports so many that you need to first decide which one
you will use.

So I would say that the first thing to do is decide on your strategy
for issuing addresses and then decide where you want to keep the
leases and/or static mac/ip mappings so support your chosen sheme.
Once you have that I (or others) can help you with the details.
