Topic: This would be a real help - assign user a static ip based on their mac
I have Chillispot up and working in a large timeshare company.
It would be fantastic if we had the ability to assign a certain ip address to users based on either their login info or their mac info, and if it's by mac address, still be able to authenticate via radius for everyone.
In my environment (672 condo timeshare) my radius database gets user information from our pbx system (asterisk) which in turn gets guest checkin / checkout info from our reservations system via a daemon. So, guest checks in -> guest name, room number sent to asterisk -> asterisk turns phones on in room -> asterisk agi inserts login info into radcheck. User granted access to wireless. Process reversed on checkout.
My problem is that I would like to give certain mac addresses a reserved IP address for security reasons - i.e. a VP traveling from resort to resort can log in get a static IP and then the upstream Cisco router takes care of granting them access based on their IP address.
