Captive Portal WiFi access control (Video)

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

In this video, you will create a captive portal to control access to your wireless network. Captive portals capture all users connecting to your FortiAP’s wireless network, and redirect their traffic to the portal page. On the portal page, you can display information, provide a disclaimer for an open or public network, or ask for authentication credentials. Captive portals provide security and information to your users, without compromising ease of access. In this example, a captive portal will be used to secure an open network for company employees.

The recipe for this video is available here.

      In the WiFi settings, there is an option called Redirect after Captive Portal. By default it is set to the original request but you can also set it to send users to a specific URL.
