Anyone experienced after rebooting the machine, Captive portals User session doesnt work? from the user view it says that it is already connected but theres no connection. I need to force disconnect all users in Status > Captive Portal for users to reconnect.

A very known issue - and it has a lot of coverage on the forum.
A temporary solution, called a patch (to be used with the Patch package) was proposed last year.
edit : the most easy solution is : do ot edit captive portal settings while user are connected.
Like : do not repair the engine of your car while it's running ^^
If you have to, stop it first (disconnect manually all users).
These are the patch settings :
You don't have to enter the "Patch contents", it will be read in automatically.
Use the URL : https://github.com/pfsense/pfsense/compare/RELENG_2_4_4...Augustin-FL:fix-reconfig-for-2-4-4.diff
Give it some title.
Do a Fetch.
Do a Test - it should mark that the patch can be applied cleanly.
Do a Apply - you'll be seeing a "Patch applied succesfully".
Btw : I'm on 2.4.5-RC (amd64) - latest version from yesterday/today - and it works.
2.4.5 RC and the upcoming 2.4.5 Release will/still have this "issue".
@Gertjan is there any bugreport?
There was one .... more then one probably.
I'll hunt them down, and report back.
Btw : this is a bug of course. Easy to circumvent, it doesn't bother me, but plain broken.
That's the one - or actually one of the two solution proposed.
It's merged again 2.5.0 so it will haunt the 2.4.5.x series for long time, except if it can get backported.
