MAC Removed



  • dear all,

    i am running captive portal pfsense 2.4.4, my problem is i have checked the "Disable Concurrent user logins" and "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic additions" in Services>captive portal>configuration" so that only one login per voucher will be active and mac address stores in "Services>captive portal>mac" but now i am facing problem that voucher is active and shown at "status>captive portal>active voucher"
    but some macs automatically removed form the "Services>captive portal>mac"

    this problem only occur after update to 2.4.4

    .... now i am facing problem that voucher is active and shown at "status>captive portal>active voucher"

    A voucher is shown active during the duration of the voucher.
    What do you mean, vouchers stay activate after the duration ?

    but some macs automatically removed form the "Services>captive portal>mac"
    this problem only occur after update to 2.4.4

    When (after how long) do they dissapear ? What do you see in the captive portal log at that moment ?



  • one voucher is used on multiple devices even if i have checked "Disable Concurrent user logins" and "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic additions"

    i want to enforce one voucher on one same device. everything was fine on 2.4.3-1 but after update this happen..



  • Make vouchers last for a minute, or less ;)
    User won't be able to activate it on a "another" device.

    The "Disable Concurrent user logins" will destroy the session used by de first device - only the last device will gave a session.
    Bur "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic additions" will make keep device on the PASS-MAC list.



  • you are right @Gertjan expire voucher can't be used again but the active voucher are real problem i have checked already enable pass-through mac automatic additions.
    before everything was ok but problem arises after update to 2.4.4

    @Gertjan my voucher are for 30 days. for example i put voucher in one device it has access and internet start working but if i put the same voucher in other device mac of 1st device is removed and mac of 2nd device added to captive portal. internet stop on 1st device.

    what if i unchecked "Disable Concurrent user logins" ??

    "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic additions"

    Uncheck "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic additions"
    It doesn't work with "Disable Concurrent user logins because earlier authorized devices keep an access.

    Btw :

    @ishtiaqaj said in MAC Removed:

    my voucher are for 30 days

    Such a delay doesn't make sense with "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic additions".



  • @Gertjan i check by uncheck the "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic additions" options in this case same voucher runs on two devices at the same time and when i uncheck only "Enable Pass-through MAC automatic additions" the first device which connect is winner...
    than i update to 2.4.5 daily snapshot but face the same probelm....

    than i find setup of 2.4.2 in my laptop and restore config file from 2.4.4 but i am unable to open captive portal from Services>Captive Portal on blank page display



  • anybody else who can help please

    @Gertjan @Derelict, how can this happen one voucher on two devices at same time even if enable pass-through mac is checked..

    and when i checked disable concurent user login and enable pass-through mac then most recent login is active means one voucher work on multiple device in 2.4.4 and 2.4.5 snapshot also
