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.
