[isf-wifidog] Blocking streaming content...

Hi Sam,

Thanks for the reply. Yes it certainly does look like the default firewall
script is allowing ESTABLISHED connections 'through'. I figured WiFiDog
would somehow (no, I have not had more than a superficial look at the
gateway code) reset all connections associated with a user on logout.
Apparently this is not the case. I guess we need a way to 'reset' all
established connections of any user when the user transitions from known to
unknown from wifidog's point of view?

Do you, or anyone else, have any thoughts on this? I expect this 'problem'
has long since been resolved.

Thanks again,
