Will this work on Microtik Hotspot

Sun Mar 25, 2007 11:08 pm

I am planning to provide hotspot for few isps. The concept is customer can access a page and then choose which isp they will choose for the connection and i am as the hotspot provider then will charge the isp for fee each time user sign up and use the service.
My questions are: it possible to do those thing with mikrotik?
2.could mikrotik act as the machine that will authorise the request from other wireless hotspot that already installed?

I do not think this is possible.

it should be possible with no problems, many our customers do this. example boingo hotspots use different ISPs in each country, but you can pay from anywhere and use it anywhere. maybe other forum members can shed more light on this kind of setup

Usually this is done with Radius-Peering and using a Radius server that can proxy/relay requests to the cooperating ISP's Radius depending on the chosen realm of the connecting user.

iPass/bongo usually do it based upon a prefix/realm.

No reason you can't do the same thing - when they select their ISP append a realm or something onto their username and base pricing etc upon it.

The other way is to run multiple Virtual APs, and map them through to each ISP that wishes to participate - best done in combination with VLAN/VPN.

Personally I'd go for the VAP/VPN method.
