  That's good.

  OK, but that's not DHCP.

  I think you're confused here.

  FreeRADIUS can do IP assignment.  It can do this in RADIUS.  It doesn't need DHCP.  It can just return Framed-IP-Address in a RADIUS packet.

  As a *completely seperate* step to RADIUS authentication, FreeRADIUS can also receive DHCP packets.

  Is this what you want?

  Because you've spent a lot of time *not* explaining what you want.  *Not* explaining what you did.  Which is frustrating, and wastes everyones time.

  Why copy the Wiki text to the mailing list?  We've seen that.  It doesn't help.

  That looks like some local link.  Don't post images to the mailing list.  It's a waste of time.  If you have questions about a document, post TEXT.

  I'm trying, but you're not making it easy.

  Describe what you want to do.  So far all I know is that you're confused about just about everything.
