I'm using FreeRadius running on a Linux Fedora box, sitting in my office in one town, handling Authentication and Accounting for tree networks in three other towns.

http://www.freeradius.org
The documentation tells you just about everything you need to know about it,
but I'll be happy to consult if you need more help with that one.

RADIUS can be set up to query a SQL database for user info and group parameters,
including bandwidth-limitations and some-such, throughput monitoring...
And you can manage/view the SQL database with some simple PHP scripts.
You can use this to add, remove, disable users, monitor their throughput,
change their bandwidth-limits...

I'm not a programmer either, but http://www.howtoforge.com came to the rescue.

Then, Mikrotik can be set up to query your Radius for Auths, and dump all it's accounting info on it too. Radius will neatly place it in the SQL database, ready for you to view or process.

I can tell you that RADIUS with SQL works great, but building PHP front-end stuff to administrate it can be very tricky. I've managed with spitballs and sticky-tape.
I'm not, however, discrediting User Manager as an option, which I quite frankly know nothing about. But yell if you need help on RADIUS.

Good luck!

User Manager is very good tool, as with installed User Manager package makes your router as advanced management server for HotSpot, PPP, wireless and DHCP clients. Just one command required to enable WEB interface of the User Manager, that is very user-friendly and intuitive, you do need to set a "bunch" of console commands to get it work.
More information about User Manager,

if he is a hotspot provider than userman is good but if he is a WISP then useless in my opinion. FreeRadius is the way to go if you are a WISP...

It is not very arguable response, you may post here and at the "Feature Request' topic for the features, that are required, but they are not present at User-Manager.

in my opinion freeradius with radiusmanager is the best solution ATM. Usermanager just doesn't have the features to support a in my situation a wisp or hotspot with having the account provisoned at the signup process as in different prices for diff speeds and have it auto populate to the customer. Most ISPs and hotspots utilize this feature to control per user bandwidth. I and others have requested this feature and told there was no plan to add the feature. On the plus if you don't need persignup bandwith management like you don't care if all users auto get like 1.5/1.5 and then you change it after signup then usermanager word great. Can't go wrong with a all in one point and click solution

In case your post is about total amount of traffic downloaded/+uploaded at signup stage (sell specific amount of bandwidth to the customer), such feature is planned at the future.

well, i havent find a way to differentiate the user queue for local or oversea in usermanager.
It's just one queue for the user.

yes what we are lookin for is to add packages at signup that are not for total allowed download , but differnet speeed packages like building ques into the packages , id want the user to be able to choose what what speed they want upon signup instead of putting it on my page and then having to change it once i get the email, this is currently not possible with usermanger but is possible with radiusmanager. I was told this wasnt going to be added in the future either, which is really going to limit the use or usermanager forcing all customers to have the same speed and default que, hope you guys change your mind on this , until then radiusmanager fits my needs better than the usermanager. Im sure alot of others would like this feature as well
1. The abililty to tie ques to plans, so lets say the 19.99 plan for 30 days gets the user 1.5
where as the 39.99 plan would give them the 6.0 plan for 30 days , and have it auto create the ques on sign-up.
This would darn near complete the usermanager package in my opinion

if mikrotik were suppose to design and manufacture a car from version 1.0, they would add tires in version 11.2 or higher...

there are some very serious limitations in RouterOS that don't allow us to make all that is needed for a complete billing system. We will try to overcome those limitations and then a lot of new features will be possible.

Hello frens,
as far as i used routerOS just made bw management and routing system only since 2 years ago, and about billing i made by myself for communication user to my central server:
and this screen shot my billing system. this's nice for myself and for dynamic user i used userman [Centralized AAA] to make control hotspot, pptp, and pppoe user

Has anyone been able to implement this? As natedogg said this is needed for a WISP situation, but i was just checking to see if this is possible?

Is there a script I could use? Thanks -Jordan

I've used Free Radius but with the need of dynamic packages for the customers; I started using 24Online as AAA with Mikrotik as Access Gateway. That worked out to be much better as Billing & Bandwidth Mgmt Paltform. Ease of manageability and handling.

I tried using User-Manager, and everything went well in testing, then fell apart when it went live.

We had maybe 100 people purchase time with Paypal on the first weekend and every other account wouldn't create or if it did create, it didn't get the profile added.

I was getting loads of primary key issue when trying to manually add the profile and I had to manually rebuild the database twice in the first week. In the end (to keep us going) I had to create a load of batch accounts and when there were issues or the customer phoned us, I would rename one of the batch accounts.

It has the potential to be a decent cheap solution, but we couldn't use it and we didn't have time to develop something ourselves so we had to purchase a system by Aradial. So far it's been running 100%.. No problems with payments and the support are excellent and very quick to respond with any minor install issues I've had.

I have extensive experience of User Manager 3.x, RADIUS Manager and am now getting my teeth into User Manager 5.4

If you need a billing system for a WISP, you should use RADIUS Manager. It works. Period.

If you have one of two hotspots and are selling time or traffic based vouchers then User Manager will do the job.

There are horses for courses. As far as I am concerned, RADIUS Manager and User Manager are designed for totally different target markets.

Yes, you can do hotspots with RADIUS Manager, but spending US$100+ for a hotspot system is a waste - especially when we consider that User Manager does that very well - for free.

For those looking for a free ISP billing+radius system .... nDebit (www.ndebit.com) is free, never expires, supports unlimited customers and includes RADIUS! You only start paying a per-customer fee when you integrate your merchant account and start processing credit cards.

I work for iCore who hosts the service. Check it out!

Hi,

We are running 3 services

1) PPPoE
2) Hotspot
3) Static Ip,

we need this all 3 service should require to run on the single Interface of MIkrotik RB1100 if you support the same with RADIUS do let us know.

All you have to do is to direct RADIUS requests to our IP address and we can authenticate the user, no problems. We have tested this with another ISP and it works fine.

It's odd that you are using same port for everything. FYI, standard ports for RADIUS are 1812/1813 (official) and 1645/1646 (unofficial).

If there is a setting for defining a RADIUS server then, most likely, we can help you. The best way to find out is test it out.

Please ask specific questions and I will try to help. I am not even clear about what you are looking for.

I hope you are based in North America because current version of nDebit handles "$" currency only.

Hey Bigguns,
I too am trying DMAsoftlabs. I've been the route :( :( with ABUSERManager and was ready to throw in the towel on the whole thing, Never had so many frustrations. The worst being losing customers when trying to make payments.
There's been a long discussion as to the reason for the paypal issues. SurferTim came up with some scripts to "fix" it. Had to do the PayPal's IP's changing and MT's cache not doing same or something similar.

Anyway, I've now got DMAsoftlabs in trial mode.
I'm hoping I don't run into the same issue with PayPal and losing customers at the point when they're entering credit card info.

They definitely are a MUCH more robust package designed to scale to XL size Hotspots or just ISP billing/invoicing or whatever...solution.

Have you had the issue with customers getting looped at the paypal page, when entering cc info?

P.S. No disrespect Sergejs, I know you must have put a lot of work into this, and I'm appreciative. :)

My personnel experience with DMASOFTLAB Radius Manager is very good. Try it. Feature rich RADIUS in very low price :).
Very good for ISP/WISP type scenarios.

I used it to setup a scratch card base fully automatic system where user purchase scratch/refill card, & using User self care portal web site, user may create his new ID or refresh his previous ID or change the service package according to the card package offers.

I've been looking for years now, and ended up with DMA Radius Manager 4 but I don't like it so much, but the features on the buy page looks cool, the main problem is:

(1) backup? how, u cant backup, you have to either buy the backup software from DMA or you have to make a image of your drive of something

(2) its running from a linux box, a pc! and my box just stopped accepting connections for some reason, I had to restart it to fix it.... and I don't trust PC's but I do trust mikrotik as a standalone linux based unit, but user manager is lacking some reason features


So I beg you all, to help out with a accounting and billing system that works with mikotik, .. my aim is hotspots, with credit card, prepaid options, using more then just paypal, if needed, and to be able to give the client a control panel and have SMS integration using a sms gateway or something, its nice to get a warning via sms when your MB's is about to run out, and to get your password via SMS

Aradial:
$3950 for entry level.

Alepo:
$200k and up

hotspotexpress.in
The price for 100 concurrent user licence is US$2000 and so it goes up.


LOL, why does it have to be so hard to start up a wifi business, hahahaha dammmm, I respect all of todays entrepreneurs out there!

I was using a linus box and now experimented with Usermanage and Radius on Mikrotik ROS. Had some glitches but I hope I can successfully implement it. Have been mailing support many times with the issues that come up and they have tried/helped to solve some.
I hope for the best. Not tried any payment gateways so far.

hi...
in fact the version 4 seem not stable but the version 3.9 is work very good with only Core dual processor to handle 500 radius client (from different Mikrotik server)...

if you want to have the back-up solution, let me know ur email as i have implement 3 way back-up for my dma radius manager, 1) Local back up... 2) email back up (up to 30Mbps size)... 3) FTP back up with no limitation...

the DMA radius manager manager can do the back up actually...

(2) its running from a linux box, a pc! and my box just stopped accepting connections for some reason, I had to restart it to fix it.... and I don't trust PC's but I do trust mikrotik as a standalone linux based unit, but user manager is lacking some reason features


So I beg you all, to help out with a accounting and billing system that works with mikotik, .. my aim is hotspots, with credit card, prepaid options, using more then just paypal, if needed, and to be able to give the client a control panel and have SMS integration using a sms gateway or something, its nice to get a warning via sms when your MB's is about to run out, and to get your password via SMS

Aradial:
$3950 for entry level.

Alepo:
$200k and up

hotspotexpress.in
The price for 100 concurrent user licence is US$2000 and so it goes up.


LOL, why does it have to be so hard to start up a wifi business, hahahaha dammmm, I respect all of todays entrepreneurs out there!

hi...
in fact the version 4 seem not stable but the version 3.9 is work very good with only Core dual processor to handle 500 radius client (from different Mikrotik server)...

if you want to have the back-up solution, let me know ur email as i have implement 3 way back-up for my dma radius manager, 1) Local back up... 2) email back up (up to 30Mbps size)... 3) FTP back up with no limitation...

the DMA radius manager manager can do the back up actually...
I've got version 4
I cant pm you my email address because this website doesn't allow it for some weird reason, and I don't want to type it in here :( :?
u can look for me at vincent_angbt@hotmail.com

It works with MikroTik just right for your needs, all client attributes can be set. It works on window and linux, has database included, web server, everything, web gui... I don't know what other solutions offer, I guess they are all similar in performance depending on price, but this one was first thing we tried it kind of a struck as right thing. Installation is simple, no maintenance and backup is included. It lets me sleep peacefully at night and spend my time on prettier things than doing linux admin stuff :D There is even (horrible boring) manual, luckily e-mail support is quick and helpful.

They changed license, there is unlimited one for 500$ and it has whmcs integration for all different payment modules. But you are right, linux ain't that bad, I have been working with it more for last couple of months, takes time for one to get used to it after windows :)

WHMCS works great.
Just have to do some scripting and customization using mikrotik APIs and all is good.
Our WHMCS portal provides daily usage summary.
Invoices bill for bandwidth overages etc.

Which Billing System Is The Best ???
Not so easy to answer as you asked for, I think.

- The MikroTik RouterOS Usermanager is inside and working well
but sometimes a network reaches a point based on fast growing up
that perhaps another solution is really helpful.

- FreeRadius standalone Server would be also an interesting
thing but you need to fiddle out many things by your self or you
must hire a programmer, but then it would be also a really good way
to present your company, services or what ever else in at a glance
or other light as now.

- ISS-7000 v2 Internet Subscriber Server
Please have a look under the specifications if this would be able to help you
reaching the goal. It comes with an internal radius server for employees and
a hotspot billing server, different billing methods are given.
And for sure it would be helping many peoples unleashing or
plain speeding up their RouterBoard massively more as they
could expect, if the router "only" offers the dhcp, dns and queues.
For sure and only my meaning it would be great to see a real Tilera based
Queue Handler (from MikroTik) that is holding only the queues then it would be
able to serve really great networks and also really fast.

Critics are welcome.
Kindly regards

Hello there!

I have tried every bit of configuration properly as per the MT instructions from all over the wiki forum and from other online resources also, but user manager is not working at all for me.

I have setup a hotspot and user manager in newly purchased RB2011UiAS-RM (6.27). Both on the same router. When hotspot user login without activating RADIUS on hotspot it gets login without any problem and works well. But when i activate RADIUS option on hotspot to configure and connect with user manager user unable to login and reload the same login page. I don't know after proper configuration with double check where is the problem between RADIUS and User Manager setup. I hope a MT expert will assist me to fix this strange user manger MT config. issue at its best to get this work.

Please visit the fourm at link http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=95810 for config. screenshots.

Thanks.

mikrotik s userman is good if you are working on lower level . but for enterprise services "Radius Manager" is good option.
