WiFi Captive Portal

Hi,

We need a captive portal system that allows us to ask guests to the WiFi network to sign in with either an email address or facebook.

The issue is we do not want it to act as a router like pfSense does, we have seen Packet Fence however this seems a little over the top for our needs as this has multiple VLANs.

We are using Ruckus APs so a local AAA server would be ideal solution, does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks

Andy

Giving a bit more detail - we want something which can be branded and also we're talking the public accessing this Wi-Fi so it needs to record user details etc. We may run a daily voucher system but also self sign up is key.

I suppose what we need is something like pfsense which doesn't act as the router, we have a Juniper SRX for that. Also something that can allow self sign up using an email address or facebook, twitter etc.

Rukus AP's support RADIUS so you could use a standalone server to add/remove users as needed to have it authenticate against that user database.

The documentation goes into detail on page 94:

Not sure what is your budget. I think Ruckus 7762 does what you need. Other alternatives you can take a look (Dual band + 802.11n) that also support AAA and radius -

Cisco aironet 1141 / Meraki MR62 / Airohive AP121

VLANs segregation ensure Guest Wifi will never touch production. It is actually not complicate as it sound to setup, if you have an active support agreement with your vendor. They should able to assist you with it.

We have the hardware, Ruckus APs with a controller, we need the software, like Packet Fence, but all we need is a html page for self registration and a database to hold the accounts so users an log on.

Thanks
