Captive Portal using local database question

We are currently providing guest access at remote sites through a RAP-5WG.  In order to prevent the entire neighborhood from accessing we made a user account on the local database and provided the sites with the username/password to provide to users who want access.  

 

My question is, can multiple users use this single username/password to access the guest network at the same time?  Or will each guest user need a seperate username/password?

Yes, multiple users can use the same username and password, unless you enable the "Allow only one active user session" option in the Captive Portal Authentication Profile.

Re: Captive Portal using local database question

I just checked the Captive Portal Authentication profile and I don't see this option.  Can you tell me exactly where this option is available?  Thanks.

Re: Captive Portal using local database question

I apologize.  What version of ArubaOS do you have?

Only supported on ArubaOS 5.x and above.  Any reason you are still on Version 3.3.2.18-rn-3.1.3?

Re: Captive Portal using local database question

So does this mean that only one user can log in at a time with that username/password?

 

We have a big environment that upgrades are not easy to do without bringing alot of people down.  We are planning the upgrade right now to avoid other issues as well.

Only one user with that username, only through captive portal.
