In any given network kerio decides who has access to internet based on an IP address. Can kerio do this based on an mac address?

I'm asking this because an user can easilly change his IP address. A MAC address is harder to change.

I'm not agree with you using DHCP server
Because any client in the LAN can assign a static IP and steal internet(if if autentification is based on IP)

True, but any client can just as easily change their MAC address. (Well, maybe not 'just as easily', but easily enough anyway...)

If this client have the local administrative rights - he can do everything. Just decrease ones to "User" and no problem.
