MAC address? Really?
You won't get user MAC addresses to pass through routers, or through a
transparent Squid proxy. The packets seen by the upstream "authentication
machine", whatever that is, will carry the MAC address of the last device they
went through which isn't a switch.
I just wanted to check you're not trying to build something that will break
authentication, and therefore be unusable...
I want to build a machine that will be proud of me.
