    Is there any way to include a captive portal with Tomato?

    Many people would call (have called) a lot of the stuff in your (and my) firmware versions "useless" or "bloat". Different strokes for different folks. Something you have no use for may be vital for someone else, or visa versa.

    Well said, SgtPepperKSU. While I use Victek's Tomato RAF firmware, I like it the way it is. IF there were to be more additions, I'm sure there would be seperate releases. I to would not like to have a lot of bloat, but having the option there for those who want it, can have it. :)

    That's only too true. Some of the requests for addons are really crazy, taking up several hundred k of program space for something that only one in a million people would want.

    Actually, a simple captive portal to show a splash page, is a very logical thing for people to want. Persons using this firmware to share their connections with others are legally required in some countries to make terms of use known to users.

    So, I wouldn't call this particular addition "bloat".

    So anyone knows the status of Vic's work on new RAF. It's been a long time - and he's been supersilent about it. Last thing i heard was that he had some problems with nocatsplash so hes switching to nodog... Now again nocat...

    Anyone with more inside info?

    I'm not being bitchy - just can't wait to see what he has for us this time :)
