    Think this would be a great feature. We use Aruba and they have a great solution but it costs tons.

    We have built a product based on Linux which does an AD lookup captures the MAC address, sticks it in AD and then Radius does the rest.

    We have a great developer who wrote this but having it on the Smoothwall would be ace.

    I am sure he would be happy to sell the idea ;)

    With the advent of BYOD this has to be a priority. Badley designed apps and many google products don't work with NTLM auth.

    Allowing devices to be registered and approved would be great. This would mean that no auth would be needed.

    If the MAC of the device is registered all you would need is the ability to map the MAC to an IP and in turn do a lookup on a registration page.

    We have done a similar thing for our boarding Houses using PHP, but it would be better at the edge, especially for wireless devices
