procurve mac-based authentication

Hi folks,

I have a question regarding mac-based authentication using a linux radius server.

What it should be the format in the users file for the password.

As far as I know, the user and pass are the mac address, but the system does't authenticate.

Any info on this is greatly appreciated.

Just unplug and plug in again ....

freeradius2 ?

00-11-22-33-44-55 Cleartext-Password := "00-11-22-33-44-55"
Reply-Message = "Hello, %{User-Name}"

auth_badpass = yes
auth_goodpass = yes

you can locate the format of username/password if you launch the radius-server with
radiusd -f -X
