Re: Mikrotik and FreeRadius (DaloRADIUS)

Hi Danihill

How far did you get with your DaloRADIUS implementation?

I'm testing it out now, but seem to have the same difficulties you had.

Would you mind sharing your experiences?

Re: strange connection problem with Dynadish PTP...

Have you tried a different brand switch?

Another thing, you should really use a gigabit switch.

You sometimes get switching incompatibilities between devices, especially when connecting gigabit to 10/100.

Most probably... But it could also be a bad crimp. Remember, on gigabit links all 8 wires are used, on 10/100 only 4 are used. Sometimes if one of the two blue or browns aren't crimped properly, you may still have a link, but it does strange things. If it was me, I'd troubleshoot as follow: 1) recri...

Re: strange connection problem with Dynadish PTP...

Make sure you're using the gigabit PoE which came with the dynadish.

Also try another Mikrotik gigabit switch.

I find that using 10/100 PoE's cause similar issues.

Re: script to remove users

You have to "kick" the active user.

Try this command:

/ppp active remove [find name="farqad"]

This will only work if the user is connected to the site where the script is run from.

You could use the :if command to first see if the user is actually online, but the above script should work fine.
