Captive Portal Vouchers expiry



  • Using pfsense's Local user manager generated Voucher

    Problem is that if i go out for a while and come back , the captive portal is asking for authentication again , i need to put in the voucher code

    which setting do i need to change so that my i stayed login till the vouchers expires ?

    How long is the voucher for?

    The DHCP lease cannot expire before the voucher. (Well, the DHCP IP address cannot be given to another MAC address, which is more a function of pool size/devices not lease time).

    I generally use Automatic MAC address passthrough with username for long voucher periods. Using that you can make your DHCP lease time whatever you want. The pruner will delete the MAC address pass-through entry when the voucher expires.



  • the voucher is set to expire after 3 days

    i haven't checked the DHCP lease time.. it's on default AFAIK,

    Takes 3 seconds to check ….. and far less then 3 days by default .....
