Re: Feature request: CAPsManager - roaming

Disconnecting a client with a bad signal is not always the best solution: if the client moves closer to another AP then it may reconnect to the nearest one, but if the client moves far away from all APs, then he gets no service. My two cents: Maybe it could be made reliably with dedicated hardware: ...

If the BGP router with the full view talks OSPF to the other routers, just add "/routing ospf instance set YOURINSTANCE distribute-default
=always-as-type-X" (where YOURINSTANCE is the name of the OSPF instance and X is 1 or 2, depending on how you want to advertise the default route into OSPF).

Re: Feature request: BGP dampening

this dampening is protecting your infrastructure not the others from your BGP announces ?
If your customers flap (which is something quite common, expecially when they change configurations), with dampening active, you avoid to propagate flaps to the peers.
