 Re: Firewall Rule based on MAC Address with ipfw and FreeBSD 4.7
Author: fabi

okay, I'll explain you the problem in detail:
we have a samba-fileserver for about 30 users inside the university network with a fix ip address, in contrast the users get their ip over dhcp service. also, we do have a firewall running on it and we want to have high secure access to it, so we listed all usernames and their ips in the host file.
now the dhcp service has been restarted, and is bothering us now with new ip's every day! so, we want to keep the access as secure as possible and username&pwd is not secure enough, so why not start mac-filtering?

maybe I made myself clear this time :-))

thanks
