Bypass Guest Authentification for specified URLs/Hosts

I am searching for a way to allow unauthentificated clients in a Guest-WLAN to reach specified IPs.

E.g.: The map of the campus is directly downloadable for everyone. If the client wants more, authentification is neccessary.

In a hotspot this can be done with the "walled garden" settings.

I tried with IP based ACL, but it does not work.

Does have anybody an idea about this?

Thx

Tobias

You have already mentioned the best solution, HotSpot, and walled garden entries.

Guest Access is designed with inherent client isolation purpose built-in. No one
gets Network access beyond ARP/DHCP/DNS, until they are Authenticated.

But what I think the OP is saying, isn't hotspot functionality broken in 9.8?

So in the Guest-WLAN with all the nice built-in features, I do have no chance?

Why there is a ACL to be configured?



If I create a new one (e.g. LOCAL-LAN) DHCP and DNS is already preconfigured.
