ideally, the captive portal blocks all access until the ToS/RADIUS is 
agreed to. one can use the Allowed IP and Passthru MACs databases to allow 
connections to/from specific IP addies or from specific MAC addresses 
without going thru ToS/RADIUS.

to attempt to do this just based on protocols/port numbers would be 
possible, but somehow it defeats the purpose of a captive portal.
