Thanks that makes sense. Any suggestions or guidance on preventing webGUI 
access? I see it in the Advanced setting (I know they are unsupported) but I 
can't seem to get filter rules in place that allow traffic to pass through 
the interface but prevent the webGUI from displaying. I end up either 
blocking all HTTP traffic or allowing it.

Personally I don't like the fact that a unathenticated user can easily get 
to the webGUI. If I can figure this out I'd be glad to attempt some 
documentation for basic captive portal setup.

Yes, traffic between machines on the same interface never involves
your router or firewall (in this case m0n0wall), so it can't do
anything about that traffic.
