which is the pattern I should use when adding domains in the walled garden configuration? ... I would like to add a website in the walled garden e.g. wowfi.com (and all the subdomains, or should I add them one by one?), can I use a wildcard, something like *.wowfi.com (I already tried this and didn't work at all)

If you're talking about fourth level domains i.e. sales.ilovewifi.co.nz then just put in ilovewifi.co.nz - the fourth level domains works.

Quick update on this, my comment is incorrect - it looks like the hostname entry in the walled garden resolves to an IP address of which if you are using a shared hosting environment it will work as it's the same IP, however if you put something like *.facebook.com in it does not work, in fact so far I can't get www.facebook.com to work as I suspect (as I said above) Aerohive resolves to an IP and of course facebook has many IP's - it's not resolving to the actual hostname.

I wish someone would tell us if we can use wildcards on a hostname inside of the walled garden.

It seems that Aerohive Support Department doesn't care.

Have you opened a case with Aerohive Support? This is always the quickest way to get an answer.

I sent an email (1 month ago) to the Aerohive engineer assigned to our company and I'm still waiting for an answer.

Ok this is the latest. from Tech Support.

"Hi Paul,
I've run this by our engineers in the home office, but at this time I'm sorry to report that from what I have been told, we don't have the ability to accomplish your goal. (**having just facebook.com, facebook.net, akamaihd.net and fbcdn.net in the walled garden**) However, what we can do is submit this as a feature request for future releases. What you'll also want to do is file a enhancement request with your local SE to reinforce this. The more a feature is requested, the more likely it will come to fruition."

So. essentially we have to put in all iterations of the facebook domain, IP and sub domains into the walled garden in order for it to work - so far I have about 35 entries in the walled garden and I can almost get facebook to work (login works but CSS is not being found), my next attempt is to list all the ip subnets to see if that will work better.

If anyone has a list of all the subdomains and associated domains or a list of all the ip subnets I would be grateful - otherwise I'll build it myself over the next couple of days if anyone wants them.
