Captive portal login works, but local network accessable



  • Right now I have my ap plugged into my opt1 interface with opt1 bridged to lan.  I have the portal working fine in terms of trying to access the internet and the portal pops up forcing me to log in, but the problem that I am having is that I am still able to fully access computers on the lan.  The captive portal is pretty much setup using the default settings.  Is there a firewall rule or something that I am forgetting?

    Thanks in advance.

    PS: yes, I have beta2 installed



  • Rules setup on the LAN interface?  If so then it should be working.



  • *  LAN net  *  *  *  *  Default LAN -> any

    Thats the only rule on the lan interface atm.



  • Well thats strange then, I have a school with over 3000 kids using a captive portal and they can talk to each other just fine….



  • The problem isn't that I can't talk to each other compuer fine.  Its that before I login I still have access to all of the computers the network. (minus the pfsense box, and it blocks the net)



  • The captive portal is only a traffic cop on traffic flowing THROUGH it.  We cannot reach out to your switch ports and magically start blocking stuff.  Make sense?



  • I figured as much for the computers going through the AP, but traffic has to flow through it between the opt1(just the ap is hooked up) and lan.  Is the captive portal not catching it as the interfaces are bridged?  If so, is there a way to setup rules similar to a bridge where the captive portal could catch it?

    Thanks in advance.



  • Captive portal does not work on bridged interfaces (yet).

    This is pretty much already changed in -HEAD (cvs).



  • At least its good to know that it wasn't that I was configuring something wrong.  What exactly do you mean in regards to that second part?

    Look for this support in a future version.



  • Alright, good to know  :)
