Hi

We have recently taken over the support of a hotel. We have two adsl lines coming in through a Fortinet 60, one for a wired connection for the staff, the other linked to a Cisco box to provide wireless access around the hotel.

The Cisco box is old and we cannot get in to it and I am not sure what we would do if we could! I wondered if it is possible to control the access to the wireless line through password/time access.

I have read somewhere that you can use groups to do this but can't track down any useable instructions.

Thanks

Paul

you can control time by scheduling in firewall options, you have to create an address group in firewall that matches your wireless clients and deny on schedule as desired,

also you can enable Enable Identity Based Policy on the firewall ACL to allow only the clients you have registered on the unit,

I'm sure it will be usefull
