Hello, We are using a combination of squid+ipfw. Although we are NATing the users, that really just introduces needless complexity that could be avoided with a bridging solution. Our web-app/captive portal/authentication program is written in-house; it's very tightly integrated with several existing pieces of infrastructure. I don't know if there are any solutions that will work out-of-the-box. I can get you more technical details if this is a direction you'd be interested in moving. -- Chris Cowart Network Technical Lead Network & Infrastructure Services, RSSP-IT UC Berkeley
