Well, that's just dumb and I didn't think anyone would even bother with the
captive portal if they didn't intend to also auth with RADIUS.  Afterall,
it's pretty useless then to give someone carte blanche access just by
clicking one button?

They should just set up a RADIUS server and get over it.  I'm basing my
response on your assertion that Jesse is competent enough to handle
administering such a service.

Hi Chris,

No, he knows the difference between external and internal access and the
nternet and the network.  Believe me.

What he's asking is for a simple auth against something other than a RADIUS
server since one doesn't exist on the network in question.  Jesse seems to
not understand this question either.  Its quite clear/simple, actually.
