Is it possible to setup a open wifi connection that only allow users to connect to 1 or 2 sites.  I run a online radio station if I were to setup a open wifi connection I would only like them to connect to my radio station web page is this possible.

Not easily. You would need some kind of firewall to block all traffic except to the IP's or domains you set. You would also have to probably block all IPv6 traffic because most firewalls can't handle IPv6. You might also be able to accomplish it with custom DNS, but any system I know of that can do what you need cost money.


What equipment and software do you have now to work with? Did you have a price point in mind? Is this something you were trying to do for free or is payed solutions a option?

Yes, you can setup the Wifi to use Opendns and block all websites except the ones you allow. You will need to purchase a Opendns umbrella subscription for the whitlist feature. You could also setup your own dns server.
