This is a feature of a front-end hotspot or portal device, not Freeside.  
Freeside is a back-office application, not a standalone hotspot or 

You can use an existing hotspot or portal device with Freeside to

setting up such a system as well as real-time credit card charging and 
RADIUS provisioning.
