here are the results of a MAC-Passing-through
IP address MAC address Session start Download Upload Username
192.168.x.15 00:zz:yy:xx:tt:fe 10/23/2009 02:41:19 170.40 MB
26.89 MB unauthenticated disconnect client
As You can see, there would be NO AUTHENTICATION than the MAC-Adress.
But since the MAC of this host ist passed through there would in fact
be NO USER AUthentication ONLY MAC!!!
So I think, this would not complain Your exigences...;-)
Any way please post the results of Your experiences - So there would
be some facts in the "Database" of the mailing-List...
