We need this option.
Our University has just such a system (hand built toll with Cisco access points) - users have to register their devices with their user account and the device then gets placed in an appropriate VLAN (Staff or Students).
So XG should at least be able to associate one or more IP addresses (or MAC Address) with a user and then user policies will work for quotas etc.
Appreciate MAC ADDRESS limited if other routers etc involved, but OK on smaller networks. On larger networks would be up to other DHCP/Switches/etc to enforce MAC <-> IP association.
The captive portal needs an option to list MAC addresses of devices that you want to automatically authenticate. I've been using pfSense and this option has been critical for me.
Please add this feature

Why SFOS need to get MAC address through client software? It seems that MAC address of any particular IP address is already in the ARP table (IP v4 Neighbor Cache) !
