Locate client in which AP



  • Hello

    i configure my AP's as bridge and i have many building each building has it's own AP and configure as bridge and PFsene DHCP server is distributing ip for clients.

    How can i know the location of ip , for example i have building A and B and both of them have it's own AP and there client with ip 192.168.1.22 how can i know it's exist in building A or B

    if i want to use the captive portal i want to specify a Zone to specific AP how i can do it also

    You don't.

    Use controller-based wi-fi and the controller will tell you exactly what AP they are connected to.

    You cannot put two different captive portal zones on one layer 2 (bridged) network. You would need to make two separate networks for that.
