Re: IPv6 and NAT - how I changed my mind

Actually, perfect NAT64 can be build using OpenBSD.

It is extremely difficult to setup (I did not set it up, colegue did), but it shall pay off. Tayga is also OK, but its quite slow.

Alternatively, I have considered using Juniper SRX and it also SHOULD work well as I read the documentation.

But you can roll your own RADIUS
Interesting, but somewhat overkill for this task.Not a Radius itself, but its config for this usage appears to be complicated (I can't imagine it at the moment so it is complicated). Anyway, I'll take a moment to think about it.

Re: How to set HS Trial user "limit bytes in/out/total" amou

How about a script:
* on login, which reads the data of Dynamic user, deletes it, and adds static one with limitaions instead?
* on logout, which deletes the static user?

Is this a way to go? have somebody had such script developed? why he hasn't published it yet?? :-)

How to set HS Trial user "limit bytes in/out/total" amount?

Hello,

I'm willing to give trial user and need to limit its bytes in/out amount. So I have some dynamic users added with T-00:my-mac-here but without limits set.

Where can I set default *User* profile for those dynamic users? *User profile* does not include those options AFAIK.

Regards.
