Captive Portal with vouchers do not logout users after expiry



  • I'm currently using pfSense 2.0-BETA4 (i386) built on Fri Aug 27 23:40:39 EDT 2010.

    I'm using the Captive Portal and vouchers to create a wifi hotspot. However, even after a voucher expires, the user is not logged out. I've ticked "No Authentication" under "Authentication" so that only the voucher is required.

    Is there a way to force the user to enter another voucher when the old one is used up?



  • Anyone experienced this, too? :)



  • Please try running /etc/rc.prunecaptiveportal from a shell once you think a session should be timed out.

    Does it disconnect the session after running the above?



  • I just setup a test machine here and it works as expected.

    Might want to make sure you have no devices in between doing NAT.



  • The only device between my pfSense pc and the internet is an Asus WL-520GU router. Could it be because of Squid acting as a transparent proxy?

    In any case, I installed pfSense 2 Beta 4, Sept 9 build and user expiry seems to be working now. :)
