 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] Problems with Voucher-Recognition of captive portal
 Date:  Thu, 03 Dec 2009 14:01:10 -0500
I really like the voucher system. We use it at an internet cafe and we 
are able to control access pretty well. We do not use the force logout 
The only thing i would like to do is force usage of the vouchers to one 
machine once started to be used.  The idea here may be to ensure the 
customer has the voucher instead of a computer?
Before i start diving into the voucher code, is there room for 
dynamically building vouchers with variable minutes? or would it just 
end up being it's own roll? -- or should i just be using radius.

Has anyone been testing / using the radius part of the captive portal?
