Setting up a captive portal for warning


Recommended Posts

I know theres a way to do this with karma because I've done it with the regular karma package on my eeepc.

But as far as I can tell I can't use the karma xml config I've setup for the standard karma package on the jasager.

When I checked the karma directory its seems to be missing the main karma package and the etc sirectory doesn't have any of the xml scripts.

I'm definatly not a expert by any means but I know there got to be an easier way to do this with the karrma package on the fon and not having to setup a captive portal in openwrt like with wifidog or nocat.

Any ideas how to display a page automatically to all that assosiate with the fon it doesn't need to have any authentication i just want to display a message to my employees to use our WPA protected AP and not any one with the best signal.

I've searched these forums and nobody has a answer other than setting up wifidog or nocat on the openwrt but will that interfere with jasager. I just don''t think one off those hotspot packages is nesisarry when the karma script had this functionality before.

Thank you in advanced,

John

There are two parts to karma, the madwifi patches and the ruby framework, the bit you've modified on the pc is the framework, Jasager only uses the patches.

To do the captive portal you could just use nocat-auth (or similar) That should run on the fon without any problem and not be affected by Jasager.

Now that make sense your just using the functionality of karma not karma as a whole. so setting up nocat isn't going to have an effect on the clients associating, once their connected to the SSID of there choice thats when openwrt takes over and issues them a IP (dhcpd) and accepts there dns requests. So if I set up openwrt as a captive portal it won't have any affect on the clients connecting to jasager.

I'm gonna give this a try and I'll try to do a write up for all those interested. If they don't mind my spelling.

Thanks digininja
