Need to create a no charge captive portal.
Posted on 2008-10-12
I need to create a controlled access wireless access point, I believe that this is called a captive portal. I dug up an old WRT54G and found DD-WRT v24 which mentions a product called Chilispot. They mention that Chilispot is no longer in development and also looks like Chilispot requires a third part server for authentication. If they arent functional any longer how would that work? I have seen the PublicIP CD but that too requires a third party authentication.
I only need to control access during certain times, not charge for it, the device would be unplugged when not allowing this access. I would like to have my own login page and have all this located within the router.
I can spend a little money for this all in one solution but not much. Any Ideas?
