Here is my scenario:
1100 users with pre assigned username and password arrive at convention center with ther notebook, sit down and plug in to the LAN
open their browsers and get re-directed to a login page before internet access is granted sessions will need time out limits etc. Also i need to limit bandwidth to 64k. Also some users will need a pre-assigned public ip address. Smtp re-direction would be nice.
What would be the minunum hardware requirements for 1100 users and a 45MB T-3
