  • Update: I was reading through captiveportal.inc and found this gem on line 663.

    /* activate ipfw(4) so CP can work */
    mwexec("/sbin/sysctl net.link.ether.ipfw=1");

    It appears  that : "/sbin/sysctl net.link.ether.ipfw=1" turns on ipfw and therefore CP and
    "/sbin/sysctl net.link.ether.ipfw=0" turns off ipfw and therefore CP.

    I tried it on my test system and it seemed to work. Haven't spent much time testing though.
