Default redirect to webpage for authentication?

P: n/a
Hi all...

I'm hunting for a script that would allow me to place a wide-open
wireless access point in my client's business. Then, anyone connecting
and then surfing a webpage would be redirected to a default webpage for
their username/password. Once they log-in, they can surf as normal
until they close their browser. Each new browser session would require
a new cookie/login to surf the web.

Has anyone seen a script that can do this? Or, should I be looking at
some sort of proxy server product?

Any advise is greatly appreciated.

A script based thing won't work. Neither will a browser proxy, all
joe.wardriver needs to do is bypass your script page and or disable the
proxy and he's through.

You need a network based firewall proxy thing. This
http://www.publicip.net/ looks promising. Allows you to grant/deny
access by user, time etc. Is based on NoCat and Knoppix, so should be
pretty easy to set up a prototype.

Good luck!

Apache's .htaccess file gives exactly what you are asking for. It can be
setup in a few minutes, but you should spend plenty of time reading through
options or your site may be "wide-open" in more ways than one.
