 Subject:  Captive Portal - Allowed Ip Addresses
 Date:  Tue, 28 Mar 2006 11:27:56 +0200
Currently the Allowed Ip Addresses can be added on the fly. This has
either a negative impact on the wrap system.

I just programmed a sort of safety for the rules which where created
during a startup. Actually, while reconfiguring the allowed-ip-address
all users which are logged in should be logged out and the
allowed-ip-addresses should be rebuilded starting from 10000. ATM this
isn't done, new rules will be added with a later rule (coming from the
nextrule file)

So current best practice is: reboot after you add new
allowed-ip-addresses (or don't change them unless you can reboot)

ATM there isn't a cleaner solution to allow a clean wrap and an on the
fly addition of the ip-addresses unless somebody has a suggestion?
