Set "Pass-through credits per MAC address." to "1"
Allows passing through the captive portal without authentication a limited number of times per MAC address. Once used up, the client can only log in with valid credentials until the waiting period specified below has expired. Recommended to set a hard timeout and/or idle timeout when using this for it to be effective.
Use "Waiting period to restore pass-through credits. (Hours)" - set it to "24" so every MAC is reset every 24 hours (a day - or chose more or less).
Clients will have their available pass-through credits restored to the original count after this amount of time since using the first one. This must be above 0 hours if pass-through credits are enabled.
From what I make of it :
When you set "Pass-through credits per MAC address." to "1", people can login ones, and stay logged in until they idle out "Idle timeout (Minutes)" or get removed by force "Hard timeout (Minutes)".
Thus you could experiment with "Idle timeout (Minutes)" : 10 minutes and hard "Hard timeout (Minutes)" 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, when the free time is over - the 15 minutes, they will get thrown of the captive portal.
The 24 hours "Waiting period to restore…" isn't over yet, so no more free login.
The login page will be shown.
User can use a voucher if they have one.
Btw : I didn't test drive this - I just read what is explained on the settings page of the captive portal.

I don't use vouchers, neither selling access time.
I just need to guarantee an Internet access for my clients.
