Automatic login page for clients


Hi,

I am about to distribute my net connection to about 30 clients around me. Server would be CentOS 5.3 and clients would be Linux/W$indows.

Question:

I want every client to enter their id/password before getting to internet facility. On opening his browser he should be presented a login page from my server and then his internet session should start until he restarts his computer. What utility or scripts should I use? or can I accomplish this through squid?

Cheers!!

You may need a RADIUS server. Take a look here: http://freeradius.org/
