NEWBIE QUESTION, Block Network access before authentication



  • Just started using a PFSense box and I have what may be a very dumb question.

    I have captive portal setup and it blocks internet access until a user authenticates. However, anyone that connects to my AP can connect to my network resources. Can that be blocked until the user authenticates? Is that possible with pfsense?

    Pfsense box(wan/lan) –--> switch ----> network devices/AP.

    Thanks in advance for reading!

    You would have to block "local" access in the AP or put the AP on a separate pfSense interface so pfSense can control the traffic from the AP to "local" network.
