Captive portal Authentication
The school i work for wants to use pfsense for a guest network, the ideal scenario is that we can give out a 'password of the day' to guests that they can login with, with the password automatically changed and emailed out to reception to give out.
Is this possible with pfsense?
I know their is a voucher system, but its not quite what we are after. It will be too complicated for staff to use.
Our users are very tech challenged and will struggle with anything more than typing in a code.
Having users look for their mail when they have initially no "login code" to access the network ?
Hummm … that's a no go.
"password automatically changed and emailed" should need some coding.
sorry, to be clear, the receptionists do have email and won't be using pfsense, i just want pfsense to email them a code of the day to give out to visitors.
One of my customers recently wanted to simplify their captive portal, so I'm setting up a system where there will be a generic password that changes every quarter. Then simply protect a "no authentication" page using the php script, they enter password, agree to t&c's and get online.
You could do the same, all the script does is get the current month, and checks the password against an array.
