Where does pfsense store captive portal user information?



  • Hello to everyone,

    I've been working with this wonderful package for some time now and would like to know where pfsense (version 2) stores the captive portal user information.

    The reason for this is because I want to create a backend program that will automatically update the user database to allow new users access the Internet, without it requiring someone to manually enter this information via the Captive portal user management.

    Also, is it possible to program the captive portal to accept a pin number, instead of a username/password?

    Any response or suggestion is much appreciated.

    Thank you!



  • Can anyone provide some information on this question?

    Many thanks.

    Rather than messing with pfsense's local db, you could authenticate CP users against a RADIUS server and have your back-end program update its db.

    Check the vouchers function in CP.
