Change wifi password automatically on RFS4000 (WiNG v5.5)


Hi.

I'm sorry for my bad english.

We have a RFS4000 controller here with 2 SSID (one is "private", the second is "public"). The "private" SSID has a fixed password.
I would like to know if it's possible to configure a dynamic password on the "public" SSID. By dynamic I mean it can generate another password and apply it automatically.


Thank you.

May be you should look to the Captive Portal with self registration for public Wi-Fi?

Thank you!

Yes, why not, I didn't know that.

But can it work automatically when it's configured?

Thank you.



Yes.
You could make only Accept button, with AAA, with personal password etc.

I'm pretty sure that the answer is no.

But let's say it's supported... how does the clients get the new PSK ?!
Hello,
Thank you for your answer.

I would like to change it each week because the public SSID is for customers and they have to come to the counter to get it.

Ronald is correct. There is not automated method within the controller for dynamically updating a PSK for a WLAN.
Hi,

Is it the only way? Change it manually each week?

Correct. This is a known limitation when using PSK authentication and why it's not used for Enterprise deployments - which will normally use .1X instead.
