Reuse IPs from the pool

Post by marco » 22 Mar 2022, 18:55

Hi

I would like to know if it is possible - as long as available - to reuse the same IP address for the same client.

In fact, during the tests I noticed that at each re-authentication with a single router, this always received the next IP address of the pool, even when the address used previously was still available.

Thanks

Marco

Hello @marco, usually most ISPs do it via the RADIUS server attribute Framed-IP-Address. Accel-ppp developers are not tried to implement this feature, because it unusefull

Ho dimka88

Keeping the same dynamic IP allows customers to continue doing what they were doing without reopening new sessions e.g. while checking their emails on the web ...

On hiperlan link CPE disconnection can be frequent and reuse the same IP address is very useful...

Yes, understand. But ISPs usually do this logic on RADIUS server-side, because it is more flexible.

Hi dimka88

You have right. We also use static ip address on RADIUS side server for some clients, but problem is to have ipv4 public address pools...

Thank for you reply.
P.S. Accel-ppp works very well :-)
