I have noticed some intermittent issues with the Captive Portal, previously
I was using v1.22 but changed to v1.23b1 to see if these problems were
While v1.23b1 seems quite stable, I note there are still some issues with
Captive Portal sessions not being shut down after the users idle timeout
period expires. Also the Captive Portal status page does not always show all
the active sessions.
Mostly it works really well, these are intermittent issues.
This is what I noted yesterday:
(1) Logged in to Captive Portal at 10:21 from 172.22.10.108 (Portal is set
to disconnect after 10 min inactivity, Logout box not used). All worked as
(2) Shut down Laptop at 10:33
(3) Started same test laptop at 16:30
(4) No Portal page appeared and I could get to Google without
My user details and IP are NOT listed in "Status>Captive Portal" and when I
check logs there is no "TIMEOUT: Username, , 172.22.10.108" message in the
logs (I use a log server).
When I checked status.php I can see a rule for my test IP (which I assume
was created when I connected at 10:21AM
