Look, I appreciate that you're trying to learn something, but this is a forum specifically for RouterOS and MikroTik products. If you want to ask a question about those, go right ahead, but this is not the place to learn general networking concepts and technologies. Sign up for a class at a local community college or kill a few weeks watching any number of free tutorials/webinars on youtube, but stop plastering the forums with questions that you really should know the answer to before you ever try messing around with a production network.

Ok thankyou i appreciate your response i will ask my question

Should i use a AAA radius server
For clients to access their accounts?

Like a ppoe customer would acces thier isp, is this the same comparison

Should my AAA server be a dedicated machine?. I think so which machines are best?

How can i manage or host the AAA server across multiple access points? Or update the directory of users to sync between

and i wonder how they can keep in sync between access point sites eg. Same user logging into two sites at once

Has anyone dabbled with, the radius "Access Challenge" and requesting a second key to establish encryption tunnel

What are the pros and cons of radius? and how can we improve it
