    Default network access control with captive portal

    I'm sorry my mistake,what I meant is if I close de login page, and not log in, I'm still able to access local resources like use remote desktop and browse any resources on the local network, I tough untangle will capture all traffic and prevent me from accessing any resources if I'm no login

    If the traffic is not going through Untangle (local traffic) it goes through the network switch not the firewall. Untangle cannot block traffic it does not see.

    Untangle only captures traffic that passes through it. Properly configured, only traffic headed to or from the internet passes through Untangle. Local traffic does not pass through Untangle, and therefore is not captured or reported. This is how all edge firewalls work.

    If you want a full-on NAC solution, you must also have 802.1x capable switching and APs in place and configured.
