Creating users



  • Hi Forum

    On a follow up from my previous post.

    I'm looking into if its possible to create a captive portal with a "create new user" button, that lets the user, type in e.g. Username and password.

    The catch is that after this is done, it could create an actual user directly on the firewall.

    Is this possible?

    Or do I need radius/LDAP/AD?

    Thanks in advance.

    @opticalx hi,
    users in pfsense have permissions

    you could create users inside pfsense, with only the "captive portal login" permission. this way, your users will be able to login in your captive portal but won't be able to login to the pfsense interface

    if you don't want to have your users inside pfsense, you could use an LDAP server (easy if you already have an AD domain ) or a freeradius server

    Why not just have an open network. it's as secure.
