 Subject:  Re: [m0n0wall] how to insert a image into the captive portal web page?

Certainly I sympathize with this position, but I wouldn't assume this to 
be true. Also, I wouldn't assume that there's another machine that can 
be used for image hosting.

While the current implementation is fine for the first version of this, 
hosting a couple of small images isn't entirely unreasonable for a 
future version. I won't look a gift horse in the mouth, since I'm 
terribly happy to have a functional captive portal. We can file this on 
a wish list to have 1-2 images (logo plus buttons) uploadable as well.
