 Subject:  captive portal logout w/poppup blockers?
 Date:  Mon, 22 Nov 2004 03:04:07 -0500

Captive portal is really a neat feature. However,
in brief testing, I noticed that the poppup blocker
in Firefox:

a.) blocked my logout poppup
b.) saw the logout poppup as coming from www.google.com,
    instead of my firewall's IP.

Perhaps this feature is already in the beta version,
but it would be nice to have a web page URL on the
firewall that users can be pointed to if they need
to logout.

And also it would be nice to have an administrative
page where the admin can view currently auth'd users
and log them out manually.

And does anyone have any ideas on how to work around
poppup blockers?
