The Aironet 1240AG Autonomous Web Interface authentication
I would like to know if the Aironet 1240AG Autonomous, is capable to do Web Interface authentication (like a public hotspot, so no security on Wifi, but you will only get access to the network/internet when one has opened a Internet Browser and got an Username password challange from the Access Point )
I'm planning to use this methode to make a guest access wifi connection to Internet available.
Had this first with a propper WPA key, but lot's of guests had many dificulties to connect this way.
So now I'm want to try it on a way most users are used to due to the Web interface authentication they know from public hotspots (hotels etc. )
Re: The Aironet 1240AG Autonomous Web Interface authentication
The only way I found to do this with autonomus is with third party software, that has the function known as "captive portal". You could try the sofware based on freebsd named monowall (its a firewall) with the captive portal feature.
