Hi to all

I have just setup a Mesh, using Freifunk, OLSR, and WifiDog. All is
working great, the only problem i have is that one's a client
authenticate over a node, he must re-authenticate on all the other nodes
routed by the olsr. The Ip and the MAC address is correct in the first
node, where the authentication occurs, and still ok on the wifidog auth
server. In all of the other nodes i get the IP and the MAC of the node
where the user get authenticated.

The "re-authentication" happen only if the node is not been reached by
other requests. Suppose to be the first to traverse the router mesh, in
that situation you must authenticate, otherwise the client get to the
authentication login only on the node where it is connect.

I suppose it's related to the "proprietary" directive located inside the
wifidog.conf but no clues over.

Can you please be so kind to point me ?

Auth - server : 192.168.a.b
reported : client's IP and MAC corrects

node (1)
Wan : DhCP
Lan : 
Wifi :
Olsr Dhcp :
Olsr Hna4 :
WifidogHttpOLSR.sh : cron biminutly

wifidog-init status --> IP and MAC 11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88
(after re-authentication)

All the other nodes

node (x)
Wan : DhCP
Lan : 192.168.x.1  [5 on the first node, 6 on the second, ..99]
Wifi :
Olsr Dhcp :
Olsr Hna4 :
MAC : 11:22:33:44:55:66:77:88
WifidogHttpOLSR.sh : cron biminutly

wifidog init status  -->  IP and mac of the client (all ok)

thanks for your help
