Guest control - portal not timing out or not requiring re-auth / re-acceptance of TOS

I've configured a very basic guest wifi portal, no auth. The page just requires accepting TOS. It's on a vlan isolated network and can only reach egress port 80 and 443. I'm serving DHCP using dnsmasq via Untangle Linux. Everything is working great except the guest access never times out and re-directs to the captive portal. To be honest I'm not sure how this works under the hood, is this only supported using a USG?

Hello @gnomemade,

 

Could you share your guest portal settings?

Hello @gnomemade,

 

My clients get disconnected from the network and have to manually reconnect to the GUEST SSID.

You may also want to disable the HTTPS Redirection. ( may cause issues )

 

Why would you want to put expiration to 5 minutes?

Thanks for having a look. I had the expiration set at 5min set so I could test to see if it was working. I'll try disabling the https reirection but that doesn't seem like it would cause no timeout or expiriation.
