Chains

Is it possible to create a chain with a wanted name?
I can't seem to find any of this documentation, in the manual says that it is possible, but it doesn't say how.

Just specify the new chain name when you create the new rule.

Kind regards

Ok, when i use the Filter-Id tag on the RADIUS server I supose that the MT would recognise this tag and create a dynamic chain, so i could control the trafic from diferent types of users.

Filter-Id:
firewall filter chain name. It is used to make dynamic firewall rule that will jump to specified chain, if a packet is came to or from the client. Firewall chain name can have suffix .in or .out, that will install rule only for incoming or outgoing traffic. Multiple filter-id can be provided, but only last ones for incoming and outgoing is used
(From the MT 2.7 manual)

I can do this with an hotspot, but with 802.1x authentication the dynamic chain is not created.
Does the MT implement this?
How?
