MSM 710 Wireless HotSpot
Posted on 2010-11-09
I have a client who has an HP MSM 710 Wireless controller. They lost all documentation on this device, no passwords, no managemnt IP info. It has been reset to defaults. I need to configure this as a captive portal with no authentication. It simply present an Acceptable Use Policy page that a customer must click on accept to access the Internet. It is completely isolated from any other network. It is the DHCP and DNS server for the LAN behnd it - consists of Cisco APs as well as wired clients on a single LAN(with a single VLAN). The MSM 710 has a dedicated internet connection.
I have configured this same setup using pfSense as a Captive Portal in about 30 minutes, but I am looking for a HOWTO to do this with the MSM 710. The manual is 580 pages!
Internet --> MSM710 -192.168.196.1> --> <SWITCH Vlan 30> Wireless APs (not managed by the MSM710) on 192.168.196.0 (VLAN 30) AND Wired clients on same 192.168.196.0 (VLAN 30)
