Network Home Page?

#1
Hey everyone. I have been wondering how to do this for quite awhile now, just finally have enough time to look into the matter.

I noticed that when you use most hotel's internet (both ethernet or wifi ) the network will override the user's set homepage, and will greet you with a page (usually to accept their terms of use).

How is this done? Is the internet being routed through a computer that will only let this page go through until the terms are accepted?

Well.. I know there is an easy way to do this, I read an article awhile back that described how to do this for a public, neighborhood network startup screen... Of course, by the time it interested me, and when I went back to find out how, I couldn't find the article anywhere.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Wow.. thanks guys, any suggestions for a binary that can run on DamnSmallLinux? If not, I'll just go through the linux list and see what the smallest ones are. The dedicated pc would probably be like a Pentium or P2.

Chillispot runs even on my Fon router which is a MIPS processor with 16 Mb or ram and 8 Mb flash.
