Well 2 different things Really.
With nocat and the like there is no requirement to proxy/cache the
traffic and no filtering per sea.
Basically the firewall denies all outbound from the IP(s) till they go
through the signup screen. Once they do so their IP is allowed to
access teh interwebs for some amount of time.
The proxy can be configured to require authentication, but I would say
that is normally for a different purpose.
