How to get Wireless Users to sign on through a web-page
Posted on 2004-08-11
I want to provide a Wireless network to a number of users.
However, I want to simulate the type of network that you get in some hotels.
That is, when the user initially connects to the wireless network - they won't obtain access to the Internet without first going through a redirected web-site that has the user enter a code (or something similar - maybe just hitting an "I agree" button).
I've seen this on various wireless and wired networks in many hotels - where you don't actually get access to the internet unless you click on the "I Agree" button on a website that you were redirected to as soon as you opened your web-browser.
I'd like to understand exactly how this is done - and what software is required to make this possible.
Lots of points available to the correct answer !
