Can I use a third-party splash page or captive portal?

Follow

CloudTrax firmware 481 and earlier works with third-party authentication servers that are ChilliSpot- or CoovaChilli-compatible.  While these servers are allowed by Cloudtrax, they not officially supported, so we can't assist with related issues. 

You can experiment to see if your server will work on the SSID #1 tab.

Note that CloudTrax has a free, built-in captive portal system that allows for vouchers, PayPal billing, free access and more.

    How does this work in the new firmware? I only see the Facebook option and splash page option...

    Hi Ronald - CoovaChilli is not supported in 5xx firmware. We'll be introducing an improved solution early in 2015.

    I am seeing forward for the improved version! I hope Chillispot Captive portal will be possible,

    I too would like to see this support made available as soon as possible. What is the realistic expectation for Chillispot-compatible RADIUS support? We're going to be using it for some large deployments so it would be great to get a sense if when it will be available.

    Hi Ryan,
    Can you give us an ETA on CoovaChilli? We're also planning a large deployment. Hope to hear from you soon!

    We're working on full RADIUS and external splash page support in the next CloudTrax release. We're planning on opening it up to customers by invite in the next couple of weeks.

    Indeed, I am currently gated by this, so I would be happy to test out the beta as soon as it's available.

    Is there a way to do a basic "http redirect" in the mean time? ... Thanks!

    How can I re-direct SSID#1 to an external server? ... the cloudtrax captive portal is almost useless. Thanks!

    External splash pages and RADIUS support is now available in the CloudTrax 4 Beta. Upgrade to 5xx firmware, then migrate to CloudTrax 4 under Edit > Advanced.
