Captive Web Portal // Auto passthrough on second visit

Hey, 

just set up a CWP for ou guest w-lan. The CWP is setup for self-registration and actually works as intended but I am missing a feature to recognise clients after their initial registration. We don't want to bother our clients each day / login to the wlan.
Are there any option to automatically pass-through known visitors? E.g. by  adding their MAC address to a pass-through list?

Best,
Julian

Hi Julian,

For sure you probably can add their MAC address and use "MAC authentication" but I don't know how to add them automatically. 

What I would suggest, if you don't want to bother them every day, is to keep their authentication few days. On the guests' SSID => Advanced => Roaming Cache Update/Ageout.

I'm using this method for a 1 week authentication (If you restart or push a fresh configuration, the roaming data will be lost).

Cheers,
Fabien
