I don't have any HotSpot, but I've been play with radius .. many brand of it.
I gave many unofficial assist to people around me about networking including HotSpot.
There is 2 common asked question from them :
1. Force disconnect (kick-out)
2. Billing desk
1. Force disconnect : Is your HSM (Hotspot manager) can send a kick-out request to the HS-gateway whenever the user run out of their time-limitation (Pre paid or per login time limit) ?
If So, does this feature compatible with other-brand Radius Client or is it just for RouterOS ( as NAS, HS, PPPoE, PPTP) ?
2. Billing Desk.
Many people want to operate a direct charge hotspot .. we can cosider it as Wireless-net-cafe.
There will be a cafe Cashier on that location.
We Can not give them a right to touch the HSM administrator web Interface, So I think it'll be great if You can give us an OCX so that people can use this with VB or delphi To create aplication that :
- One button push to generate and print a random user and password
- Check out
=+ Request the user transfer-byte and Time from HSM
-+ Disabled the username
The HS user have to be able freely create their billing-desk application with it.
And BTW. the DMASoftlab's Radius manager have a reasonable price to me. I don't know their features yet
OOpps, Is that right that Mikrotik HSM can allocate diferent connection speed to each logen in user ?
Keep up the great work
