Captive Portal Zone Renaming Possible? *Solved*



  • I'm trying to make our Captive Portal Zone names the same across the board. I don't want to delete and re-create it due to the walled-garden and MAC bypasses that I would have to re-enter. Anyone know if there is a way to rename the zone name?

    Thanks!

    The quick method ?
    Of course.

    One in a while you made a backup of your pfSense system, right ?
    Open such a xml file, and have a look. The structure is very easy to understand.
    De-activate all your captive portal zone files.
    Export a backup.
    Open and edit the file - find the location where your "zones" are stored, edit their names.
    Import the xml file back in (or better : import only the captive portal section).
    Active your portal zones.
    Done.



  • Wow, I didn't even think of that. Nice work!
