Captive Portal and Traffic Shaping to PF

May 27th, 2005 by Scott Ullrich

I’ve just finished up the conversion of Captive Portal from IPFW to PF. This basically leaves us dependent on IPFW for just Traffic Shaping now (ALTQ). However Bill has created a patch against PF that allows advanced branching to anchored tags that will allow us to still have our Traffic Shaper logic seperate from the firewall rules.

So in a nutshell the GUI won’t be changing but the backend will be changing a great deal! Prepare for a interesting weekend.
