permit remote access to hotspot wireless devices?

Tue Dec 12, 2006 9:51 am

I want to use the hotspot in my routed environment, but can't seem to modify the firewall (or hotspot) settings to allow remote access to hotspot devices. I need to monitor CPE availability(ping) and do remote configuration of wireless hotspot devices. any suggestions??

I need access to fixed IP hotspot devices, even when the user is not logged in!

Walled-garden allows specific resources without authentication in HotSpot.

walled garden works from hotspot client -> outside destinations
what I need:
outside locations -> routerboard --> hotspot client (conf customer equip.)
without hotspot client being logged in.

Go to ip, hotspot, ip bindings. Click add

enter mac address of device, select pass-through. Thats all there is to it. You can optionally set an perminate ip here as well.

Thanks, but this does not create what I need, it creates a hotspot client that never needs authentication. I need a hotspot client that I can reach when they are not logged (fixed ip), yet when they try to use the net, they must authenticate to the hotspot. Put another way:

Outside network --> hotspot --> client [free ride, no authentication]

client --> hotspot --> outside networks [normal hotspot authentication]

You need to port forward to your devices...trying searching then read the firewall manual as this has been discussed many times.

unique port forwarding for each client doesn't scale well and would be difficult to maintain. I tried to remove/change the unauth-client-to rule on the firewall, but it is a dynamic rule that will not change!

I just need to break the "hotspot" assumption that outside connections to unauth clients is not allowed.
