I am having a problem getting Mikrotik hotspot to work properly with a radius authentication server. In short, the main problem I am having is that even when I set the MAC cookie to 5 days, if I reboot the server, I get the login page again. I have other Mikrotiks in the field (not using radius) where if I reboot the server, the cookies are still there and noone has to log in. Does anyone have any experience with Hotspot + Radius? Below are some config details that might help, if you need more info or clarification, please let me know.
Using Radius server with:
HTTP PAP enabled
Mac Cookie enabled
MAC Cookie Timeout set to 5 days.
