Voucher authorize 1 MAC address (1 voucher = 1 MAC Address)



  • Hi,
    I'm using the CP with the vouchers.
    When a user start a session with a voucher, I would like to forbid the use of the same voucher by another MAC address (1 voucher=1 MAC address).
    I activated the options "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic additions" and "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic addition with username" and it worked, if I tried to reuse the voucher on another laptop I got the message "voucher already in used by <mac address="">" but the expiration time of the voucher is no longer valid.

    Do you know if there is any solution to that?

    Thank you,

  • Anyone?



  • Enable "Disable concurrent connections"
    The options you set - I think - do not do what you want. Do not use them for this problem.



  • From what I tested "Disable concurrent logins" just allow one session per voucher.
    If you're connected with a voucher and another person try to connect with the same session, the voucher will work for him and the first session will be disconnected.

    But if you check "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic addition", with this option, the same voucher can't be used by 2 different machines. That's what I want. But it's also invalidate the expiration date of the voucher.

    The description tells you why:

    If this option is set, a MAC passthrough entry is automatically added after the user has successfully authenticated. Users of that MAC address will never have to authenticate again
    

    This adds an passthrough based on the MAC address. A passthroug bypasses the CP. It bypasses the login system. No matter if it is voucher or username/password.



  • Yes I understand that.
    But is there anyway to have a Pass-through MAC for a limited time?
    Some hacks?

    Thank you for your help,

    Antoine
