One time login Wing 5.8.6 Captive Portal


We have SSID with captive portal. We want to set 1 time login only for forever (Maybe locked by Mac address), is it possible? As i know, the default configuration is we need login to the captive portal after we disconnect or reconnect in the future.
Thanks,

You can use the inactivity-timeout command under the captive portal. Per default it's set to 600 seconds, max. is 86400 seconds / 24 hours.

If the client send no data during this time, the session is removed and the client need to relogin.

It's not possible with the internal solution. Why you need this? Maybe there is a other solution.

It's not possible. But especially for VVIP you should never use a open wifi.

I'll recommend the following:
- Internal AAA with MSCHAPv2 (quick, easy and secure)
- External AAA with MSCHAPv2 (a little bit complex, but with a better management options as internal AAA)
- External AAA with EAP-TLS (complex, because you need a certificate for each device, but most secure solution)
