User Manager/QA/How to make MAC authentication
Let's consider configuration scenario, when we need HotSpot users MAC authentication trough User Manager. We assume that User Manager already provides AAA for HotSpot router. HotSpot MAC authentication method allows to authenticate clients as soon as they appear in the hosts list, using client's MAC address as username.
Configuration required on HotSpot server router:
/ip hotspot profile set hsprof1 login-by=mac use-radius=yes
Command enables MAC authentication for the particular profile and forces to use RADIUS for AAA. Note, first local HotSpot database is consulted, then User Manager database.
User Manager configuration:
/too user-manager user add username=XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX subscriber=MikroTik
We add user information belonging to the particular subscribers, it allows HotSpot user with MAC-address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX to authenticate in HotSpot without prompting login/password.
