Feature request and PATCH: Radius + local authentication

  • I patched our pfSense installation to allow local user accounts to log into the captive portal IN ADDITION to Radius accounts.

    This is useful when you want to have "special" accounts that can log in, in addition to your Radius users. For example, you can to create a guest account for a conference, but don't want to have a guest account in your Active Directory. I'm sure you can think of other good reasons this should be allowed.

    Anyway, this patch enables it but doesn't provide a configuration option for it. I'd love to see this feature incorporated in the official release! I also encourage comments from more experienced pfSense developers on what this patch might break, as it was done more or less by the seat of my pants. :)
