Hi

You can do this but you need the IOS firewall feature set on your router and an AAA server to implement it. It is called auth-proxy and attached is a doc to configuring it on IOS 12.4

Re: Setting up accounts with 1812 router

ok im reading the doc u sent, good stuff

is it possible to set up the box with users and accounts? can i set this up with out any servers etc etc? im using it as part of a sort of wireless hotspot in a bar enviroment.

Re: Setting up accounts with 1812 router

Hi,

Unfortunately AFAIK you must use TACACS+ or RADIUS for authentication and authorization in the case of auth-proxy, any way you can have an open source RADIUS to do this for you, like the famous FreeRADIUS:

Hi

I think Mohammed is spot on with this. I did think you would be able to use local accounts on the router but after some further reading it looks like you have to use a Radius/Tacacs server.

Windows has a AAA server but i don't know whether it is compatible, otherwise as Mohammed says there are free versions out there.

Hi,

Windows Radius is compatible. I guess you should go for Radius implementation. By this users would be prompted for user name /pwd and then only it will allow user to access http.

All your user accounts will be on Radius.

Re: Setting up accounts with 1812 router

well im using freeradius for windows and it seems to be functioning so far so good

my implementation is for free http access in a sports bar, currently im trying to upload a htm file to the router in order to place the terms and conditions b4 login but it is saying the file has to be under 8000 bytes, is there a way to get around this or is there a way i can redirect users to an html page or site where i can place the terms and conditions along with the bar's logo?

thanks
