Long time ago I have been toying with ipf (for the genral firewall) and NoCat+ipfw for the captive portal. But that did not work too well, so any technical information will be appreciated :) My long term vision is a quite integrated thing, where users that read their email and authenticate to POP3/IMAP would be granted the access without the need to authenticate to the web portal.
