Hi Benoit Thank you for the response, I try to experiment and run wifidog -f
-d 7 after running
configure, make and then make install It runs and does lot of stuff.
But wifidog expect the wifidog.conf to be inside /etc/ directory the install
scripts puts it
in /usr/loca/openwrt/wifidog.conf  I think that is because I had created a
wifidog.conf file manully before running
the script.. So it is smart to put where the old files are. But then the
wifidog -f -d 7 still looks inside /etc/
Should I report this as a bug and open a ticket ??

I have other issues I am running authentication server on Fedora core 5,
very window friendly environment.
One has to manully configure the wifidog.conf file and I am having problem
understanding some of the terminalogies mention there in.

the link to one of the supposedly working wifidog.conf file.

GatewayID is missing. I think to me it is unclear the terminology GatewayID.
Comming from Networking world it has alway been an IP address or Hostname.
Here the comments says one has to set it to template ID on the
Authentication server.I did a find .  -exec grep -in command to find the
template ID and found one in wifidog-1-1.3beta2/wifidog.conf
If somebody can tell me where to find this template that would be greate.
Then it says It would be MAC address of Gateway Does mean MAC address if
Auth- Server or Router, Most firewalls and Authecation proxy the MAC address
of the router located on its WAN Port. That knowledge confuses me a little.

ExternalInterface vlan1 -- Is this the external interface on multihome
Authen server  Or Multihomed wiidog AP/ Router

Why are this specific IP listed under generic configuration and not even
commented out ? I do not understand.
FirewallRule allow udp to
    FirewallRule allow udp to
    FirewallRule allow tcp port 80 to

 Thanks for the help
