Access timelimit



  • I just downloaded the iso but I have a question.

    Is there a way to time limit access to the net for certain pc's by ip or mac?
    I have 3 that need 24/7 access and have 3 that need to be denied access from 23:00-06:00
    by denied I mean totally blocked not even able to get a ping out.

    Nope



  • Try setting up a captive portal with a radius-server that supports timebased rules. Your clients have to authenticate at the captive portal to allow traffic going out though.



  • This option does exist within Squid, but there is no GUI configuration for it yet.  I'm working on re-writing the package in pure PHP now, so I will be adding this feature.  I post release notes with each release in the Packages board, so you'll know when this is added.  Thanks!

  • Redpanther,

    Be aware that what Myntric is adding to the squid package will only affect HTTP-based traffic.  It will not block ping or other non-http traffic from the affected machines.

    Ok, thanks for the clarification.



  • but captive portal blocks everything unless you are authenticated  ;D

    Unless you add a pass-through mac or pass-through ip entry.

    With RC2, I was able to setup a block for 2 computers that my kids use to keep them from staying up all night.  It may be what you were looking for.
