    You can do this by adding the specific mac-address into the captive portal zones but it is very troublesome because you need to edit per device.

    yea… i dont know what to do now. Because i installed pfsense in pc because mikrotik didn't supported UDP port openvpn, but now i cant limit the bandwidth of hotspot user in pfsense. I'll probably just flash the mikrotik router with openwrt and run both thing from there. thanks for the reply



  • No current plans to implement that outside of RADIUS, where it's always been supported. The FreeRADIUS package can be setup for that purpose easily if you don't have a RADIUS server already.

    For sure they don´t and this perhaps for ever, related to the circumstance that OpenVPN is OpenSource
    Software and mostly if you or another one adopt something from this kind of software you must be serve
    then this new software to the whole public again! But MikroTik is taking license fees for their software
    called RouterOS, and so they don´t take all inside of RouterOS, thats the point.

    If you need a really good VPN server that is accepting nearly all kinds of VPN types
    you should be having a closer look on this project here, SoftEtherVPN si able to be
    installed on Linux, Windows, FreeBSD and is really feature rich. Many peoples use
    it in a DMZ as a VPN server with great efforts on older HP Proliant Micro Servers.

    You could be taking a small MikroTik router behind the pfSense and let the MikroTik do the
    queuing job for all the user limitings, its not such a big deal or?
