Hi Alan,

Thanks for responding

When i run "radiusd -X", i get the error

        The program 'radiusd' can be found in the following packages:
          * radiusd-livingston
          * yardradius
        Try: apt-get install <selected package>

That's because I logged the user "test" in and out, and then in again. 
My bad, should have just posted output from one login. Anyone else who 
connects to the network after this (the first user) simply gets access 
to the internet, without any redirect to the captive portal

Thanks a lot for that pointer, i'm scouring through the configs of the 
captive portal to see what might be wrong
