How to ban an hotspot trial user ??

Fri Apr 07, 2017 5:07 pm

Once hotspot trial authentication is enabled , each connecting user is created with T-<MAC address> username

How can I disable unwanted user(s) ??

The dynamically created users can't be disabled by ip->hotspot->user section.....

You can achieve this through a script.

The problem is how you identify "rouge" client and normal users ?

Not so easy..... i.e. a permanently "active" hotspot user or a known "active host name" in a dhcp lease....

I mean the maintainer has to identify MAC address to be banned, not routerboard automatically itself.....

Could not be easy. The administrator have to be 24/7 looking the active hotspot users?
Its easier to make a white list of users and bypass it from hotspot, in other case why do you need hotspot if you only want to give service to know users?

Just in case some non-occasional user (i.e. my neighbor's house) gets my wpa key and use hotspot as his own gateway.....
