I was thinking of resorting to block the address directly on the router too. Thanks for your feedback guys :)

We had a case like that at MSF where a user refused to register.  We
warned him via the site, and when he would not stop, we simply blocked
his MAC address at the router.  He was not using a portable, so it was
easy to detect and fix.  By the time we stopped him, he was 30% of our
customer base.

  Hi all!


I just wanted to know if the new version of the wifidog server allows
the blocking of MAC address on the server *before* validation. 


This is because there are users that register an account, use it for 10
minutes, don't validate it, and then register another. Since there are
no ways to delete users (yet?), then it's important to block them
before they load the database with bogus usernames.


Thanks a lot
