Answered Question

When a guest wlan user is created (by the LobbyAdmn function) there I get back a pop-up box with her autogenerated password. This is normally a rather complex password. Is there any way to print this with e.g. a label printer so that I can give it to people and wish them good luck rather than writing it down, making errors, joking about my hand writing etc. etc.. I think that looks rather unprofessional.

Hi Joerg,


This capability (sadly) is only available when creating Guest accounts

using the WCS,as shown in the attached doc. With WCS you have the

option to Print or email this info;

Hi Rob,


thanks for the advice that almost solved my problem. We have a WCS but use it for monitoring only. How does the WiSM learn from the WCS that a new visitor account has been created? Does the LobbyAdmin need to apply a config or so?


Thx,

Hi Joerg



Yes, when creating guest accounts via the WCS Lobby Admin there is a section

of the cofig that asks which Controllers you want to apply the guest user

to
