Captive portal blocked MAC AFTER changing settings



  • Hello,

    Today I noticed 1-st time that adding new MAC address to Pass-through list caused another to be blocked, even both were on the list.
    My list had 25 entries in MAC passthrough, I added 26 manual entry and noticed that first MAC on the list has been blocked.
    I mean: it was on the list, but I logged to that station, opened browser and.. pfSense Captive Portal appeared!
    I had to re-save settings for this fist MAC to be allowed again.
    I'm using 2.0-RC3 (i386) built on Thu Aug 18 18:44:11 EDT 2011 at this site.

    any ideas?



  • Can you reproduce this easily since i cannot?



  • Yes, I can reproduce this without problem.

    Just adding 26 entry causes 1st to be blocked.
    Adding another one (27) will not block 1st entry.
    All MACs are unique.

    EDIT:
    but it seems it happends from time to time, now I've added 3 new different MACs one by one and still can connect from that station.

    I guess something wrong with save settings for this panel?

    Another UPDATE:
    I've just deleted my MAC from the list, added again using login/password on Captive Portal.
    So result was like screen2 and I was able to open website from this MAC.
    However, then I've changed description and it blocked me - screen3. Captive Portal appeared in browser.
    So MAC was still on the list, but i was blocked anyway. I had to save settings again for this MAC.








  • Does anyone even noticed it?
