Solution Required for Multiple SSID Captive portal

by azhar » 11 Mar 2020, 09:11

Hi,

This is going be a long post. Actually we are looking for Expert suggestion for below scenario.

Scenario:
Our AP can able to broadcast multiple SSID. We are using Mikrotik As a NAS. We want to show different captive portal in each of the SSID.
e.g.
SSID 1 = Captive Portal of a Coffee House.
SSID 2 = Captive Portal of a Public WiFi.
SSID 3 = Captive Portal of an Office.
SSID 4 = Captive Portal of Shopping Mall

Cloud Radius: http://demo57.hsnetworkmanager.com

We tried to solve it in below approaches.

Approach 1:
We have configured HSNM and Mikrotik NAS in our own way like this on http://demo57.hsnetworkmanager.com.

ADN TELECOM LIMITED > ADN TELECOM LIMITED 1* CUSTOMER > adn_hsnm >

HSNM Configuration:

Mikrotik Configuration:

ADNSSID1 & ADNSSID2 are configured in different VLANs in HSNM. And Mikrotik and AP is also configured in same way to untag VLANs. Besides, we have downloaded configuration file and used "hotspot" folder (https://imgur.com/EaN2lUC) on each "Hotspot Server Profiles" in Mikrotik. In this way, two different captive portal was showing in different SSID without any problem.

Limitation:
  • 1. Each Gateway is considered an SSID.
    2. Each Hotspot Server = SSID in Mirotik.
Advantage: Approach 2:
ADN TELECOM LIMITED > Demo Manager > Domain125 > Gateway142 >

HSNM Configuration:

Mikrotik Configuration:

VirtualGateway1(VG1) & VirtualGateway2(VG2) are configured in Different VLANs in HSNM. And in Mikrotik VLANs are configured in "Bridge" interface. However, we are not able download configuration files from VG1 & VG2. The only way we can download configuration is from "Gateway142". So we have downloaded that used "Hotspot" Folder in Mikrotik. So after connecting to WiFi we can only see landing page which is selected in "Gateway142". But our goal to show different landing page in different SSID is not accomplished.

Limitation:
  • 1. Hotspot Files can't be downloaded from VG1 or VG2
Advantage:
  • 1. One "Hotspot Server" can be used for all SSIDs.
Please go through our domain in HSNM to check configuration.

Thanks in Advance...

Hi Azhar,
we have already received your request via mail, so please keep using the same way to communicate, or a single one.

In order to solve your request, you've to use VGs.

It is not necessary to upload every VG configuration to the Mikrotik because once you upload the "father" one, every VGs are included.

If you need technical training, I will forward your request to our Sales department.

Have a nice day.

Is this solution is for Mikrotik Wireless (https://mikrotik.com/products/group/wireless-systems) ? Can we use this solution considering following devices.
  • 1. Radius - HSNM
    2. NAS - Mikrotik
    3. AP - Cisco
Thanks :)

Yes, you can.
APs must be connected in bridge mode to Mikrotik Gateway.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. We will connect AP in bridge.

Anyway, we have already configured LAN IP Address on VG1 (https://imgur.com/undefined)& VG2(https://imgur.com/GRYAwBt). But the problem is, we are not able save configuration without putting an IP Address on Gateway"MultiSSID" > Hotspot Network.

How can we handle this issue.

Every gateway must have a different network address.
Have a nice day.

Hi,

Thanks for continue supports.

We have already configured Gateway on below Gateway.
http://demo57.hsnetworkmanager.com/
ADN TELECOM LIMITED > Demo Manager > Domain125 > MultiSSID

But the problem is when we uploaded the configuration file in Mikrotik; VLANs are not configured. Can you please check the configuration .rsc file and upload it to a mikrotik to verify.

Thanks Again.

I've seen your configuration, but you haven't set any kind of SSID-per-vGW.
Please check your configuration again or I will make you in touch with our Sales department to sell you an advanced training course with a certified technician.
Have a nice day.
