I had this happen to me again today. My boss's laptop tried to
access the Captive Portal network. I gave him a MAC pass-through,
but it didn't work. He got no pop-up when he opened a browser,
and while he could ping other hosts on the external wireless AP
(like my laptop), he couldn't ping the m0n0wall running captive
portal. He had a lease via DHCP though. It didn't show up in the
m0n0wall because it's a static lease, so I don't know if the
m0n0wall actually assigned it to him or if it was cached in his
kernel. I had to add his static DHCP IP to the "Allowed IP addresses"
page to get him online.
I want to get to the bottom of this, but I don't know how to
go about debugging. Can someone give me some things to try
next time so I can narrow down where the problem is?
