This is probably a very stupid question but i am going to ask it anyways. In wiana it shows leases which seems to be any wireless device that the mesh node assigns a dhcp lease to at that node authenticated or not. then if i select SHOW ALL LEASES i get information that is somewhat the same but not always the same as for that particular node. and sometimes some nodes dont show up at all in SHOW ALL LEASES list. some leases are on totally different nodes than the first. someone like to explain that?

Probably the different lists are constructed by different scripts, and so some data might be out of sync depending upon when the data was uploaded. Second question is.. what file and path in an active node can the authentications that the node has given out be found??

if you do IpTables -L, this will show all current rules for the firewall. If you go through the splash screen and authenticate, a rule is added for your MacAddress. All the rules refer to the MacAddress. {{{ >All i have been able to find is the file that shows the mac >addresses that i have mac authenticated thru wiana. is the actual >list of authenticated users stored on wiana and used somehow real >time?

The list of users able to authenticate is stored on wiana, and the radius check is done in real time.

CwRadius username password

to check the authentication.

The setting itself is not that hard. At least not on the command line. Assuming is your SubNet

IpTables -A FORWARD -d -j REJECT

This would reject all traffic to the SubNet, but allow logins from the meshbox to that subnet.

Of course you'll need a rule to allow traffic to the gateway, i.e.

  1. iptables -A FORWARD -d -j ACCEPT or similar (I'm not very

familiar with iptables lingo)

Question however is, will these settings be overridden by any wiana setting?
