Captive Portal Wifi


Recommended Posts

I'm looking to setup a "guest" AP and been looking at possibly using Untangle or PFSense. My question is, I know I can set usernames and passwords locally. What I want to do is like say you goto a coffee shop and their running a wifi service you have to create your own account.

How can I setup a captive portal where the user's will have to create their own accounts?

I think you will have to design some kind of web interface, where it can interact with a backend (database) and from there users will be able to sign up and use their own sign-in accounts in order to access internet.

Also you will need a Radius server, that will do all the users authentication before anyone is allowed to surf the net.

I did some research in Google and found some useful links that could help you get started.
