"login" and "logout" urls

Sun Jul 24, 2005 7:08 am

This maybe my second post, I cant find my previous post so forgive me for double posting.

Can we make "login" and "logout" legitimate urls so that hotspot users can just type "http://login" and "http://logout" on a blank address space instead of "http://10.5.50.5.1/login.html" and "http://10.5.50.5.1/logout.html" respectivelly.


Thanks .

You can make 'login' a url. Just add login as an a-record in your DNS-server.
ex: value: login ip:10.50.5.1
The hotpspot will redirect url-request to login page automaticly.
You could do the same with logout, but you would have to make this a-record point to a different IP on another webserver with a webpage redirecting back to "http://10.50.5.1/logout.html" on the Mikrotik Hotspot server.

you won't need second because if you're already logged in router will give you a page with your session time and "log off" button..
so logout can point to the same ip

well, I have tried it but didnt work. when you type in logout on the address bar it displays the status.html instead of the logout.html

Anybody tried it yet?

that is only a small problem since you may edit the status page that way so it would instantly redirect the browser to the logout page.

It is better to modify (create) rstatus.html - then status page will still be
available.
