I was looking for an open source solution to a reverse captive portal, I have users that require access to internal resources, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS from the outside. What i want is a public website where they can go type in their username & password and then the firewall will dynamically create a rule that will enable the ports assigned to this user from the source address they are at.

Next to writing my own solution i wanted to know if any thing like this was already done.
