Re: ROS 6.45+ Dot1X support with User Manager?

Dear,
Yes we hope that Mikrotik will add this feature to User Manager. Would be logic.. why you should need 2 radius servers or why should you replace userman by Freeradisu or Windows NPS if this feature could be added to Userman.
Hope Mikrotik will add this feature soon.

Correct... that's why CAP should check version of CAPsMAN first... if newer upgrade.

In order to get everything working well you need public fixed IP addresses on all sites.
Another solution is to make VPN's to your central point if this is possible and then you're authenticating through a fixed connection with fixed IP address.
