ASA 5505 +MER Connection Type

Hi

My UK (SKY) Fibre provider requires MER authentication so I need to have my ASA 5505 to perform that. Even though ASA 5505 supports DHCP with option 61 it appears that you can only use either MAC close or the default settings "Cisco-<MAC address>-<Interface>-Host"

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/asa91/configuration/general/asa_91_general_config/basic_dhcp.html

However there is no option to parse credentials over DHCP option 61. Anyone aware of any workarounds?

Thanks

There is already an enhancement filed for the customizing DHCP  option 61 on ASA:

Hi,

The developers are still working on this but we do not have any fixed ETA for this.
