[isf-wifidog] Restrict Clien access

Hmmm, so in case I have an account that I want to "disable" or "deny surfing" can that be done? I work for a University and we have students that register each semester. If they don’t register any class then they don't have Internet access. What I am trying to do is disable navigation for those users that are not registered for the current semester without having to delete them from the DB, it will be great if I could just disable their account. Or have a script disable all accounts after semester ends.

Thank you so much for your support

As far I I know, there is no one planning on implementing making accounts 
expire after a set time.

If you mean limiting bandwidth or connection time per month (or some other 
period), then yes, this feature is in development.
