What I really need is to make my AP's talk to the radius server which connects to an SQL backend and allows users to login.
I have a setup now with radius server that authenticates my vpn users with data supplied by MySQL.
The users get either static or dynamic IP's from different pools.
It works great except for one thing. The commercial users are not allowed to create IPsec tunnels to other places.
For that I want to use WPA and a controll system based on Mac-addresses.
My AP supports radius and I wanted to give it a shot.
I just don't understand how that authentication method works with radius Mac-addresses.
Is there any tool for radiator that can be used to easly manage users with a web based interface?
I don't want nor can teach my customer how to add users from command prompt.
