Instant Access points – Guest – internal Captive portal issue

Firmware version:-

Model:- IAP 205


  • DHCP server from Virtual controller assign.

I am not able to restrict the number of login  from particular Guest login account. Multiple login is enabled by default.

Please provide a screenshot of where you are restricting multiple logins.

Re: Instant Access points – Guest – internal Captive portal issue

Hi CJoseph,



Actually i was going through features available for guest users in IAP. (Firmware is also upgraded to most recent version)


I have tested below option which are helpful for guest authentication in IAP.


  • Internal (Editable) Captive portal for guest login.
  • Auto on/off Guest SSID.
  • Bandwidth limiting on particular SSID.
  • Guest session time out after disconnection from network (Guest users have to relogin in internal captive portal after approx. 3 minutes once disconnected from Guest Network )
  • Set maximum client limitation per SSID

I could notice that one login account (Internal captive portal user login) can be access from more then one device simultaneously , which i want to limit.  Except that i found all other option very helpful in virtual controller(Normally requires hardware controller to achieve same).
