Date and Time Change - Captive Portal Expiration

  • I am wanting to set up pfSense at a local hotel and use the captive portal to require authentication.  I would like to be able to set the account expiration to expire the next day at noon and the best way I could figure out to do that is to off set the time by 12 hours.  Can you manually set the time ir does it require an NTP server?  Am I barking up the wrong tree here?


  • Actually this would be the easiest way without modifying code. Just set your pfSense to a different timezone to do so as the ntp-client would revert your changes if you manually set a different date/time.

  • Ah the troubleshooting skills of a pfSense Hero, thanks a lot man that will work great!
