Topic: CHILLISPOT INTEGRATES SOURCEFORGE SHAT

There is a project at sourceforge called "SHAT".

SHAT stands for Source Hardware (MAC) Address Translation daemon.
It uses a method to allow any computer... even with **ANY static IP configuration** to access internet.

The actual control could be done via captive portal authentication (Chillispot).


Thank you.

just found it myself. it looks interesting

dont loose focus here, its CHILLISPOT we are talking about

Re: CHILLISPOT INTEGRATES SOURCEFORGE SHAT

Yes simplywifi....!!!

This SHAT project is very interesting. I downloaded and make it to rum here in Fedora7 but... no success.
I was monitoring the traffic in debug mode and it shows an error in the returning path of the packet.

I understood that this project should be based on:

a) proxy arp programming knowledge;
b) dhcp client programming knowledge;

Considering you have a dhcp server... I mean... a pool of available IP addresses... this project should role as dhcp client dealing with MAC addresses coming from proxy arp, and playing dhcpclient role inside the chillispot.

I am not sure if I could make you understand because of my poor English.

late reply, but your english is ok to read!

can we turn off chilli's DHCP that would be nice and use a central DHCP linked to Radius ;?

Re: CHILLISPOT INTEGRATES SOURCEFORGE SHAT

Hi...


I intended to use this SHAT to allow users with some static IP configuration and different from the Chillispot dhcp-server IPs... to access the internet without changes on its IP configuration.

I mean:
1) User can keep its static IP configuration;
2) SHAT translate the amazing user IP configuration into some valid Chillispot IP address internally... transparent to the user.
It means that Chillispot will have an internal table to translate Chillispot DHCP-server IP versus User_amazing_static_IP;


This kind of feature is already done by several commercial products. One of them is Mikrotik RouterOS.
