Hello,
   I'm looking for solutions to create a captive portal for my guest network so that people can register for temporary internet access while on my school sites. From what I've been reading this is achievable by creating a portal on a separate web server and then integrating into my SmartZone 100. I have, unfortunately, been completely unsuccessful in finding any type of guides or walkthroughs for this setup. Do they exist? Is this still possible?

Hi Vincent,

The SmartZone OS has built-in full captive portal functionality, which may be all you need!

Check out the online user guide. The following link will take you straight to the SmartZone portal-based WLAN configuration section:  http://docs.ruckuswireless.com/smartzone/5.1.1/sz100-vsze-administrator-guide/GUID-ACFCADB1-7AE9-403...

I hope that helps,
Darrel.

Thank you, Darrel. To confirm - I will need a 3rd party Captive Portal to allow guest registration, correct? I am only seeing an option for a pre-created guest pass natively on the SmartZone.

Hi Vincent,

Apologies for the delay in responding.

Yes, to confirm; you will need a separate solution to provide full guest self-registration captive portal on SmartZone.

Ideally Ruckus CloudPath would be utilised for this functionality:  https://www.ruckuswireless.com/products/software-and-saas/cloudpath

Best,
Darrel.
