Filter based on Mac or IP with filewall group rule set ?
I'm wondering what I would like to do could be done.
My setup is: Wan (Modem) - PfSence (Dual Ethernet) - Lan (Switch)
Mac/Ip will be used to as a allowed/trusted device(s)
if mac/ip is trusted.
Check mac/ip firewall group rule set.
if firewall passed, Grant internet usage.
if mac/ip is not trusted.
All DNS resolves to a lan ip and http is redirected to a web server that is a lan machine.
At which point I can do other things that would grant a user to be able to be placed in
a trusted group firewall state.
Lan to Wan
Firewall group settings A, Based on Mac/IP
Allow unrestricted tcp/udp
Firewall group settings B, Based on Mac/IP
Allow TCP HTTP 80,443,8080
Then Wan/internet to lan port forwarding
This port to that ip port deal.
Can this be done ?
If yes then are their any other packages required to complete this task?
Figured it out.
Swapped the windows dhcp services for pfsence dhcp service.
(re-created the entries in pfsense dhcp)
(changed line 78 to header("Location: http://localdomain.ext");)
/* be nice if the captive portal had this ability built in. */
(changed line 417, Just changed "8000" to "8080")
(changed line 65, Just changed ":8000" to ":8080")
Then restarted the captive portal. and all non auth users are sent to the http://localdomain.ext
(which is another system on the network that has the web server and database that enables me to do what I wanted and then curl to the captiveportal)
