 Subject:  Central Dynamic Configuration for Captive Portal RADIUS
 Date:  Wed, 29 Mar 2006 19:42:41 -0500
Hi, I'm trying to create a system where I will be able to mange hotspots
more dynamically and from central location. I want to begin by creating
"algorithm" where the list of Radius servers for captive portal could be
obtained automatically from the central WEB server or secondary backup


The reason for this is faster and easy management, quality of service
configuration and scalability. Here is how it works: At startup NAS (M0n0)
connects to preset DNS URL and read config file that has a list of Radius
servers (and maybe other configuration) [also beside this dynamic function
nas should have static info on 2 radius servers, just in case, but those 2
will be added et the end of the list, if connection is ok] so about the
list. the list obtained from server will contain all available Radiuses, now
when the list is obtained nas will ping all nases and once with the low
pings will be placed in the beginning of the list. .


Also, there should be implementations of groups so that we can assign nases
to proper Radiuses and change the groups during maintenance. 


Do I make myself clear on what I want?  Do you want to implement my Idea?

Does any one want to work with me on this?
