Captive Portal Status

The Captive Portal Status page is available through the pfSense® software webGUI at Status > Captive Portal.

To view the status for a Zone, select it from the Captive Portal Zone drop-down.

This page displays a list of online users, including their IP address, MAC address, Username, and Session Start Time.

The exact output for each field depends on the portal configuration. For example, if MAC address filtering is disabled, the MAC address may not be displayed. If user authentication is not required, then there will be no Username to display.

One of several different user styles may appear in the list.

For a portal with No Authentication, a listing like Figure Online Captive Portal Users No Authentication is shown.
