In the case where there *was* a captive portal on a network, and now there is not, it might be useful to tell clients that life has changed. The client might prefer to stay on 3G or pick another network rather than try that portal. It might also be meaningful to signal no-captive portal to clients which have previously connected, but will no longer be challenged (ever? until DHCP lease timeout?). For instance, if I whitelist your laptop MAC address in my home. -- Michael Richardson <mcr+i...@sandelman.ca>, Sandelman Software Works -= IPv6 IoT consulting =-
