I second the concern Rodman has raised - this sounds like
a feature that would be a problem for some of us.

If I understood correctly, with a clean slate, eg,
rebooting m0n0 and clients, you can't ping a
client until he has accepted the TOS.
That's a problem.

I tell my customers (customer :-) to leave the
client bridge on all the time, so that if I do maintenance,
as I did on Monday, then all I need to do is ping
to verify that I put everything back correctly.
(I am treating the CB3 as a Demarc.  If I can see it,
the problem is on the client's side).
