Not at all or not yet. Both have Internet access. That's all.

I've been searching around about this issue and I have found a post by
someone on wifigeek.net , who had a different approach to the whole
captive portal/authorization theme.

Check the post here:

Basically, this exclusivly relies on DNS and all you need to
distribute is a DNS server which then gets the user to a website
(online) where they sign in and then they are "ready to surf". I was
wondering if m0n0wall could be used to accomplish the same thing.

Since I have multiple locations and would not like to distribute more
hardware than necessary, it sounded like a good idea to me. When I
speak of multiple locations, then I mean, that they are around 300 km
apart from each other. Both are hooked up to the Internet and that's
all so far.
