Captive Portal not working

  • Hi,

    I just noticed that after upgrading from an older version (not sure exactly which, but from Feb 2010), to the latest snapshot(2.0-BETA1
    built on Sun Apr 4 08:35:10 EDT 2010), it appears the captive portal no longer works.

    When I disable it and then enable it from Services -> Captive Portal, I get a spew of errors in the system logs such as :

    php: /services_captiveportal.php: The command '/sbin/kldload ipfw' returned exit code '1', the output was 'kldload: can't load ipfw: No such file or directory'
    kernel: KLD ipfw.ko: depends on libalias - not available or version mismatch
    php: /services_captiveportal.php: The command 'sysctl net.inet.ip.fw.dyn_max=10000' returned exit code '1', the output was 'sysctl: unknown oid 'net.inet.ip.fw.dyn_max''
    php: /services_captiveportal.php: The command '/sbin/ipfw table all flush' returned exit code '71', the output was 'ipfw: Warn: Failed to get the max tables number via sysctl. Using the compiled in defaults. The reason was: No such file or directory ipfw: setsockopt(IP_FW_TABLE_FLUSH): Protocol not available'

    It seems from these errors that we may be missing the ipfw module.

    Is this already documented as a bug, or would a new bug need to be opened for this?


  • I have reported this and Im sure the dev's know about it.

    downgrade to a 1st apr snapshot and captive portal should be working fine.


  • Thanks slam. I'll do a downgrade now.
