MAC Address logging

  • I would like to use pfsense for a public wireless network but I need to keep track of user MAC addresses for at least 3 months.
    Is that possible with pfsense?

    Thanks for your help!!

  • no.
    And even if it were. What for? MAC's are unreliable to track users.
    AFAIK squid can create logs per IP.

  • Thanks for your response.

    I totally agree with you but unfortunately this is a security requirement from my company and I need to find something to make them happy.

    Can ARPwatch log the MAC addresses for a certain amount of time?
