The problem is that the RADIUS Client (Mikrotik?) is sending the same
port (or none?) for all users. This causes RADIUS to think that the
user is a new user on that port, and replaces it.
There are two ways to resolve this:
1) Edit the Calls table trigger and add additional intelligence to use
unique ports for the update to the ServerPorts table. RadiusNT/X 4
now supports character port names, so you can use the username or
other unique fields to create the port.
2) Have Mikrotik send a unique port for each request.
Also, we have a wireless hotspot authentication server for linux that
is RADIUS compliant (works with RadiusNT/X) and does send the unique
ports, including full accounting and management. It seemlessley
integrated with Emerald as well.
If you would like to try it, please contact our sales group for a
