 Subject:  Shorter timeout Captive Portal using Arping ?
 Date:  Mon, 21 Mar 2005 14:39:54 +0100
Hi

When we searched the market for Captiv Portal software some of them used 
Arping (Arp-ping) to keep active sessions alive.  If a logged in computer 
gets disconnected from the net for more then say 5 seconds, the sessions is 
closed. Avoiding "dead sessions" that could be used by bad guys.

Any thoughts of implementing that in M0n0wall?
