This seems like a very nice option, maybe for some sort of authentication

Subject: [m0n0wall] any interest in captive portal support?

Does anyone have any interest in captive portal support?

I.e., the ability for users to get redirected to a web page of your choosing
before they're given access to the web as a whole.

This is useful for shared wlan scenarios where you may have unknown users
and you want to either a) tell them who to thank for their access and/or b)
notify them of the usage agreement.

If there's interest, I'm considering hacking something like
http://www.geekspeed.net/wicap/ from perl into php (pf to ipfilter, apache
to thttpd, OpenBSD to FreeBSD).

In the spirit of m0n0wall, I'd try and keep it simple - e.g. the portal page
would be generated from text strings stored in the config.xml file.


cheers, michael
