Description

Please I think the developers should look at the pfsense Captive Portal and FreeRadius Authentication very well. Apart from the MAC Address Authentication quota not working this evening I updated the pfsense 2.4.4-RC and the Username and Password quota too is not working with the FreeRadius authentication.
I assigned 1024MB to a User in the FreeRadius and the User used more the 1024MB assigned to him. I checked the system log->freeradius, this is what I saw
"Sep 21 19:43:13 root FreeRADIUS: User stephen has used 0 MB of 1024 MB Daily allotted traffic. The login request was accepted."
Also another User when I checked system log-> freeradius, this is what I saw
"No logs to display."
I think it should be looked at it.
Thanks

As mentioned on the forum ( https://forum.netgate.com/topic/135679/pfsense-2-4-4-freeradius-mac-address-authentication-qouta ) it may be a configuration (or maybe documentation?) issue.

That said, I think that the FreeRadius package should inform the captive portal for the users traffic quota (using pfSense-Total-Max-Octets). It does not currently.

This way, captive portal quota using FreeRadius package would work even if "Reauthenticate users" is disabled.

Multiple users have negative feedback (see #8989 ).

I submited another PR to fix the issue : https://github.com/pfsense/FreeBSD-ports/pull/579

To make sure someone doesn't get the wrong idea based on that last note:

The errors mentioned above are covered in #8989 and were fixed with a separate PR. The fixes for this issue were not reverted, so they can still be tested with the updated FreeRADIUS package.
