Pass-through MAC Auto Entry Only gor Users, not for vouchers



  • Hello,

    is it possible to use the option in CP "Pass-through MAC Auto Entry" only for users I set up on System > User Manager?

    We use User-Accounts for the teachers but will also have teachers as guests, who will get a temporary voucher. I dont want an auto-entry for the guests. They need to order a new Voucher every day.

    Thanks for your help.



  • The clean solution :
    Use a second interface with a second portal.
    The first one accepts Local Users and auto add MAC.
    The second accepts only vouchers.

    The "bits and bytes" solution :
    Nail down the place where the test is made if a MAC address should be added to the MAC pass-through list.
    Add your own test that skips the "MAC pass-through" adding part IF the login was done with a "voucher".



  • You mean another cp on the same interface?

    Our APU board has only 3 port. 1 port for teachers, 1 port for students and one for WAN.



  • Yes, another interface.

    Two different portails can't run on the same interface.

    Maybe some VLAN trick can give you a solution.

    Btw : see my message above : I added another solution.

    pfSense is a software product.
    You actually have 99,99% of the source code at your disposal. So the possibilities are unlimited.

    I advise you to look for a 4 NIC box.
