What I meant for Vouchers packages is the following:
-Ability to create plans (by time or by traffic) and able to assign users to it and print those vouchers (easy part) also modify the GUI
-The problem comes when we create 2 weeks plans for example, and our DHCP lease is only a day, if the user is off for a day and someone else gets the ip he had before, he will be asked to authenticate again. Now if he has used 5 days of plan, would he now have 5 days left or since he has been authenticated he will have 2 weeks again. this is why I want to implement sqlippool to better mange the leases and prevent this from happening.
When I have a chance I will post screen shots of what I have and see where we can go from there. Also, I am trying to build an Asterisk package, could you point me on some doc you used?
Hi,You are welcome!
I am glad there is finally a good package for this. I had done this before by custom package building on FreeBSD with VMWare and then installing on PFsense, no GUI. I am using it on a hotel right now with 1000 rooms. I would like to contribute and share my work to contribute to a robust solution with MySQL integrated.
There are a couple of things that I've came across and want to fix are the following:I do not have much experience with *SQL databases. The basic support to connect to an *SQL database is ready and working. But you are right. I didn't take a look at sqlippool and of course if there will be GUI support for creating a custom SQL query would be really nice.
-Implement Freeradius with sqlippool or better manage DHCP leases
I thought of to hardcode the main part of a counter (daily, weekly,time, data) in the sqlcounter.conf and from GUI everybody can add the queries he likes.
-If user is authenticated for 1 day and server reboots, he has to authenticate again ( I want accounting to continue where it left off)I don't think there is any way around - if freeradius or the NAS reboots the user has to reauthenticate. If the NAS sends "interim updates" or "start/stop" accounting updates then there will be no big accounting loss when server reboots/crashes. To get high availability you need to use more than one RADIUS server and more than one database (freeradius2 package can do failover/loadbalancing for LDAP or *SQL).
So I would be interested in what we can do on this point.
-Better Voucher/User GUI and printing options.You have to explain that more in detail.
I'l be glad to share my work and help where I can.As I said above - if you have any SQL ideas or something developed (sqlcounter, sqlippool, DOCUMENTATION ) then I really would appreciate to implement your work!
