Wrong Captive Portal Timeout



  • Hi I am using pfsense PRERELEASE 2.0.3

    Some times happens that captive portal and after few seconds timeout the logged. For example I note in portal auth logs this

    Mar 12 12:32:32 logportalauth[53585]: LOGIN: myuser, f8:1e:df:ec:41:cb, 172.24.128.5

    Mar 12 12:32:44 logportalauth[49365]: TIMEOUT: myuser, f8:1e:df:ec:41:cb, 172.24.128.5

    after 2 seconds timeout.

    Mar 12 12:21:27 logportalauth[53585]: LOGIN: myuser, 74:45:8a:5d:e8:69, 172.24.128.13

    Mar 12 12:21:30 logportalauth[15876]: TIMEOUT: myuser, 74:45:8a:5d:e8:69, 172.24.128.13

    after 3 seconds timeout

    It's strange is set 1 hour hard timeout e 5 minutes idle timeout

    Why ? What could I do?



  • are you using radius authentication ?



  • Hi thanks for your reply.

    I am using local authentication.



  • It happen only with Android 2.3.



  • Ive come across this too, Im testing using 2.0.3 with freeradius package.



  • I reported the same allready in thread http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,60860.0.html and also in an older one with 2.0.2.

    The last activity date/time isn't updated (sometime for days). I attached a picture from today. I tried 2.0.3 beta versions and the current official final relase of 2.0.3. It isn't working.

    For emergency case I modified captiveportal.inc file to log wrong timeout times and I only accept timeouts if last activity is newer then login date. ???

    Please fix this release. I hesitate to switch to 2.1 directly. Probably I would be better to do so.
