typically if you want authentication for internet access then you'd use PPPOE... maybe you can do some research on PPPOE servers available for linux...

Other than that, maybe you can setup a proxy server(such as squid proxy server) that requires authentication... and only allow traffic that goes through the proxy... This would probably be limiting to the end users, but may be a more feasable solution for you.

I'm still a linux newbie myself so I can't tell you haw to configure these, but the squid proxy server is a commonly available package in most linux distributions.

I guess we should get things straight now... are you wanting to host a single website that has authentication (requires user/pass)?

or are you wanting to setup some sort of ISP for your community?

Do you control all the clients (do you own the systems)?


Can you please restate your intentions so we can get a better idea of what you're wanting to do.
