WiFidog won't work properly for clients routed from other subnets

Hi guys,

I'm running wifidog on openSuSE 11.1 x86. Everything is working fine, but only in a single subnet. I want to route 3 different subnets to my wifidog gateway. Ping and portal redirection is also working fine from the other networks, but when I'm logging in, it gives me the green error page. On console view it tells me, that wifidog can't get the MAC address from the client. So what to do? I looked in our running NoCat system and there's a switch to set the Gateway mode from captive to passive. I think this is the solution. My question is now, is there in wifidog a similar switch or does is work in another way or don't it works in general?

Wifidog needs access to the MAC address (it's a fundamental part of it's design). If you want to gate several subnet, either you install, one gateway per subnet, our you proxy arp requests (proxying arp requests will be covered by more general networking documentation).
