Great work! With your modifications it would make an excelent internet 
gateway. Hope to hear soon about the progress. Let me know if I could be of 
use as betatester.

However I am also curious if other people are using monowall as an internet 
gateway. Anyone working with radius accounting and monowall? If so, what's 
your setup?

I am currently trying freeradius on a laptop as a server (low power, small 
and battery backup), just for some experimenting. My goal is to extend the 
captive portal with a "subscription" page in which you can sign up. Probably 
using a script (on a seperate server?) accessing the mysql database with the 
user accounts. Anyone using a similar setup?

Best regards,

Read the list, then you would know that there is a new radius subsystem
coming up.

Search for radius.... ;)

Always read the manual for the correct way to do things because the
number of incorrect ways to do things is almost infinite

Hi there!

First of all, some incredible piece of software! Runs nicely mysoekris,
and I am using it for an open hotspot experiment.

I have used monowall and the captive portal succesfull together with a
radius server. However it was only used to give users access to the
internet. In latest beta version (and I asume the 1.2 version also,
havent tried it yet), you could also make a user database on monowall
itself, which is quite usefull, and radius can be eliminated for certain

So, it would be nice to be able to do more with the radius server,
having specific restrictions per user. (for example traffic shaping or
specific firewall rules).

Is anyone using radius and monowall for more then just giving access?
Any thoughts on how to extend the functionality of monowall for radius

Thanks, Taco
