 Subject:  Modified mini_httpd for captive portal
 Date:  Wed, 9 Jun 2004 16:41:22 +0100
I am in the process of re-writing (!) some parts of the captive portal 
implementation in 1.1b12 to support an in-house authentication protocol.

I am having a bit of a problem that is related to parsing the response from 
the authentication server.  The details of the authentication system are not 
important (or relevant).  Having authenticated via the external service, the 
user is redirected back to the portal with some embedded values in a GET 

I do not seem to be receiving these in $_GET as I would expect.  In the code I 
note that Manuel pases the original GET request that triggered the portal in 
the first place via an environment variable from mini_httpd.  I guess from 
this that there may be some issue in using GET; I also note that the existing 
portal uses a POST to get stuff in.

Is there a limitation here that I should know about?

Any help appreciated.
