Not sure if this is already a feature or not. I have a community that wants users to have to go to a central place to signup and get their userid and password (two stationary desktops). Where they could print out on the printers atttached to those computers a userid and password. Then they could go to their laptop and use the userid and password. They want them to have to go and get their userid/password on a daily basis to gain access to the network. So their access would expire daily. They do not want them to be able to sign up via their laptop, but only via one of these two computers. The whole thought behind this is that this AP exist at the pool of a condo and the residents around the pool are using the AP as well and they want the residents to have to go to the pool to get access for their laptop on a daily basis. They want to make it difficult for people to basically use the AP as their home wireless service.

One thought was to be able to restrict the signup portal pages via Mac Address and everyone else would just get a regular login page? Just a thought. And I would image there is a way for an account to expire after one day.

Thank you, Bryan Kidd bknfla@…

I would think that the "Password of the day" model would fit what you want to achieve a lot better (http://dev.wifidog.org/wiki/WirelessCommunityModels). Far easier for the users, and a lot less complicated to implement in the auth server as well.
