By using either FreeRADIUS or another RADIUS server you can use the MAC address authentication by creating an entry in which the username and the password are the mac (without : or – characters) you want authorize. Zeroshell manages the authentication by using Kerberos 5 backend that not allows to set the password equal to the username. For this reason if you want this feature you have to manually add the entry in the file /etc/raddb/users.
Hi Fluivio, I’m using your Zeroshell for six months or more… As I understand right now, If I write an entry in the file users assigning a user and password and mac address as the same, the radius server will allow it? Can you show me an example of that entry? Can it be done to the lan users also?
Is there a way to link a user to a ip and a mac address? thanks…
