It is possible example i login. that user cannot be login again in different phone because it's active. Thank you.



  • Hi,

    You want to prohibit that the same user (person) uses his login credentials on more then one device ?

    The first possibility :

    ca0f7d24-cc40-4ec2-9d8a-ff06991a144e-image.png

    Note : only the last login will grant access, previous logins using the same user credentials are disconnected.
    Maybe not what you want.

    Next possibility :
    Use vouchers will a very small number of minutes - 5 or so.
    Also activate this option :

    Ones the voucher is used, it will become unusable very fast.
    Drawback : it's up to you to remove the MAC addresses from the MAC list, so no more automatic time out.

    Next solution :
    Use FreeRadius to enforce Captive portal authentication.

    When you use settings like this :

    52072768-c9c5-4bdd-9959-6c4d2b0cf775-image.png

    only one user/password combination can be active, all other attempts will get denied.

    Maybe a drawback : you'll be using FreeRadius. You'll have to learn a lot about this "tool" top manage it a "little bit".



  • @Gertjan Thank you for the info.
