I have a router that does captive portal and if you close the window you can
go to http://unit_ip/logout.cgi and it kills the authentication.

Ip-adress if there is someone logged in already from somewhere else. I

browser and machine after logging out. I have m0n0walls now everywhere, so

do a test. Maybe someone else who reads this could test it.

kind regards,

You can't really "logout" with HTTP authentication; you'd have to convince
your browser to forget the login credentials that you entered, so it's a
browser issue. There's no "session" on m0n0wall that could be killed; the
credentials are sent with each request. We could return a 401 response, as
this makes some browsers clear the cached credentials, but AFAIR this isn't
necessarily true.
