• I was wondering if it would be possible to add time-based policy easily for captive portal? I have a friend who has children and she want to be able to control internet via time-based policy.

    Also, is it possible to add "DansGuardian" into pfsense as 3rd party package? Its a web content filtering.


  • Try to use Captive portal with an external radius server that supports time based rules.

    Once Squid is done work on squidguard-package will start. Myntric is working on this. He's also working on authentication for Squid I think but I haven't followed this closely. Check the Squid threads in the packages board.

  • That is correct.  Local, RADIUS, LDAP, and NT Domain authentication will be supported as means to control access as well as a time-based policy and squidGuard integration to filter white lists, black lists, etc.  In fact, the reason I took on the Squid project is so I could provide filtering and such for my children as well, so I can definitely relate.  More details will be posted to the Packages forum as progress continues.  I'm currently about 2/3 of the way done with the re-write and then I'm hoping it will be stable enough to move onto the squidGuard integration.  Thanks!

  • Thanks for the info.
