Mac- Authenticate

Can the User Manager authenticate users based on thier MAC address? If so can someone point me in the right direction?

Yes, it can. Example, for wireless MAC authentication you can use the MAC address as a username in the User manager.

Ok this works. Now can I use my main Mikrotik to control all my mikrotik AP's? Then all I have to do is enter their info on one box instead of each one individualy as I do now. Any pointers would be appreciated.

Don't want to hijack the thread but it seems we may be asking the same question in a round about way.

I have a MT with user manager setup here in the office, can I get our other MT systems in the feild to authenticate the users from this unit?
This would be a big plus as our users could then use their service from any location we have.

Yes. You have one database of all MACs in the user manager and then you can have multipme routers that authenticates to User manager.
Just add another Router in the user manager and configure your new router to connect to the user manger using radius.
