Hi Peeps :-)

another Noobie Question :oops:

I have IPCOP 1.4.11 running with red and green interface only; connected to the green interface are several wireless access points. We allow access to the internet via MAC address only, this works fine, however, its becoming a pain individually entering the MAC address into ALL the access points when giving someone access to the internet.

I have tried advanced proxy, but this only blocks access on port 80, which still allows other stuff to work (msn etc..). I had a look at BOT (block out traffic), but this seems overly complicated for what I need.

Basically, all i want to do is centralise MAC address entry onto the COP box, if MAC address is recognised, they get an ip address from the DHCP and get internet access, if not, "limited or no conectivity" :lol:

Absolutely any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi codiac!

The easiest way is to use the built-in facility on your IPCOP i.e. the BLUE(wireless) interface. That will mean adding an additional network card, but you will then be able to control access centrally by MAC address via the " Blue Access Administrative Web Page". Check out the relevant section in the IPCOP manual for full details.

Hi DaLight :D

I was hoping I could do something without having to install another nic, however, it is probably the best course of action.

BTW, If you haven't already, have a play with the Vigor 3300v, superb bit of kit. Load balances perfectly and the voip functionality works a treat! Thanks for recommending it.

Thanks again for the help :D

I'm still waiting for you to send me one to play with! :D
