Additional Information
« on: November 24, 2006, 11:20:35 pm »
Sometime in the future, would it be possible to include additional client information in the session history?  Such as MAC and the local IP address.

Another feature that would be handy is to track the HotSpot's  Internet IP address.  Maybe just update it everytime someone attempts to logs in, update the IP details.

I have a couple of hotspots that don't have fixed addresses.  I know I can use services such as dyndns, and currently do, but it's just another thing to manage.  And if you reach the limit of their free accounts, you still have the same problem.

I already store the mac address, but not the ip address. I didn't find it useful. Do you think I should?

The ip address tracking is a service I could easily do with the future hotspot monitoring feature.
Maybe I could even make a hotspot dyn dns service... I'll see...

Thinking a little bit, it would even be useful for controling the hotspot in real time. New Chillispot versions now has a radius server for dynamic control of sessions.
