Re: Need help in Limiting Users' Daily Access

Thanks Petrn,

I have been studying the script above looking for a way of including the profile "students" so that instead of reseting all users, it look for users with profile "students" and then apply the reset command on them. Any one good at MT scripting and schedulling should help pls.

Re: running two hotspot on diff interface in a single Router

why i am getting confused is the fact that i can ping 127.0.0.1 and could not ping the rest. This could not possibly be firewall issue, but even if it, i have disabled all the rules and yet no way.

Hmmmm! no way! You know i can ping 127.0.0.1 replying correct but 127.0.0.2 ... 254 timed out! My out interface is set to ether1 (wan). Are you running hotspot on these router os? No! I guess!! I have disabled all the port blocking firewall rule living only the default hotspot rule but not replying.
