Is it possible to assign Hotspot to a VPN connection?

Tue May 09, 2006 10:20 pm

I'm working on setting up a demo of some stuff, and it would be useful to allow someone to VPN into a router, and then "see" the hotspot pages as though they were an unauthorized client (and then register, authorize, etc). Is there a way to do this?

Yes, there is a way to do a remote test of Hotspot. It involves bridges & EoIP.

Create a bridge, with the local Hotspot interface on it. Add an EoIP tunnel to the remote "test" router & add it in the bridge. On the remote router, bridge the EoIP tunnel with the appropriate port.

This allows you to remotely test Hotspot connections, even when the Hotspot router is, oh, 6000 miles away.
