What is the best way for remote control
I have a captive portal for a classroom. I want to be able to give the teacher a simple program (bat file that would make a smbset call) to enable and disable the captive portal for the entire domain without giving the teacher the password to the pfsense firewall. I am running pfsense on an alix board and therefore using the embeded version.
Inital thoughts for a solution:
I started out this evening to try to create a snmp mib that would remotely call a script and do the same things that the webportal currently does to enable and disable the captive portal. This obviously got nowhere fast since bsnmp doesn't support scripts.
Is it worth the effort to try to create a loadable module for bnsmp? I don't really want to become an expert on bnsmp.
Does it make sense just to create a daemon program that would acomplishwhat I want and not use snmp?
Will 1.3 have the web interface broken up in such a way that I can just give the teacher password where she can control the one area without being able to break any other settings?
I'm open to other solutions.

IIRC, 1.3 is supposed to be getting per-page user access controls. If you can wait, that should be the easiest solution.
you can create a php page to enable/disable this function and upload it on captive portal login page web server. I do this to multiple function/add on for captive portal. then u can simply call the function from web page. Just make sure the php page called captiveportal-????? so web server can serve it.
