I'm running m0n0wall 1.22 version (now 1.23b) and I have a strange issue
with captive portal... (not sure if 1.23b also has)
We have about 50 users and 8/1 ADSL line traffic shaped with m0n0wall
and it works like a charm, even we have some continuous p2p traffic. web
surfing works fine.
Everything works great BUT if our bridged ADSL uplink goes down,
Internet is not accessible... (ok, this is trivial) BUT when the link
comes back up, some of the users are not able to surf... They can't even
reach the captive portal... But some of the people are able to surf...
Somehow, m0n0wall blocks some of the people after WAN linkdown. After
link has come up, some of the people are able to surf (access to WAN),
some are not.
These people who are not able to surf can access ping m0n0wall, but dns
or anything else to outer world does not work. If I reboot m0n0wall,
computer starts to work immediately.
I can solve this issue by rebooting m0n0wall and get people register
captive portal again..
I have also runned m0n0wall without captive portal with no issues..
I readed previous post and I think that the captive portal SHOULD work
if there is some problem with the WAN (internet link), it is very handy
to use captive portal to inform people....
We have Internet link problems, operator has been informed and it should
be fixed quickly... I can't do this now, if we have wan link down...
Anything can do?
Best regards, Jukka
