    Is there any way to let users access specific sites BEFORE a username and passwd are created for them?

    For example – they can connect to paypal to send small fee, then have a password IM’ed or emailed to them. They would need some connectivity to do this before account is created.

    What about a paypal clickthrough on the captive portal, then autogenerate time limited login & pass once funds are transfered?

    i have not tried this feature but i am pretty sure if you search for session accounting you should be able to find some txt but other than that i really wouldnt know where to refer u.

    I am also interested in this, i am / have been looking for a good captive portal and all the ones i have tried have some kind of flaw or dont work for an ip range i am looking for. I am wanting to use a class B subnet and have a wide range of ip addresses for my hotspots and subscribers, the reason being it would make it harder for the end users to be compromised by someone with less than perfect intents to hack their pc. as an example, i would have an ip range from 172.86.0.0 to 172.86.255.255 for self sign up users and 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255 for customers with a 6 month contract. Would it also be to something like paypal wifi-1.1.1 prepaid, http://sourceforge.net/projects/wifipaypal/ , to the captive portal interface page. this is a relatively easy thing to use, but i ran into problems with the linux distro’s i had tried, not related to this software.

    just a thought though

    Maybe in the “Free Authorized Services” you can introduce the Paypal IP.

    Never tested it! 😳

    The accounting module should be up and running first, then the walled garden affect should be build into the code that does the redirect to the captive portal, and should allow for at least 5 urls to be entered.

    To email a username, that was chosen on one of the custom wep pages, can be done easily, and when the submit button is clicked, an entry can be written into the database, and the account enabled for login.

    Just a few smart lines of code, and 2 extra web pages, and we are there.
    I have worked out a simple way to have an accounting module for hotels, that will keep any specific account active for 24 hours, and then disable that account. It requires for the zeroshell server to be restarted every morning early.

    We can make it work. I just need some sample code on how to write to the database.

    Sounds great! Once you get what you need, let us know when it’s ready to testdrive 😉

    The “accounting module should be up and running first, then the walled garden” idea seemed to have died away.

    Is this anywhere in the list of requested features?

    This will take zeroshell to a professional WISP level.

    You should redirect the success page option, to a page where they are then added to the logged through an automatic Java Script script, and then they will have access to the internet for a specified period of time. You can use a generic username and password for the day of the month (gives you 31 different accounts), which you embed in the Java Script login for that day.

    PayPal has a success page redirect option. This might be the easiest way. You can make a copy of the login page, one for each day of the month, with hidden credentials, and an autonomic form submit script, which will give them access to the internet straight away.

    The users will only be able to access this page, when they have successfully paid for the service.

    Hope this helps.

    This should be achievable, right?
