I am using ZS as QoS shapper and it works good now I would like to implement ZS as authentication server by Captive Portal to my network. My config looks like this:
I have some questions
1. can ZS work in Bridge Mode as QoS Traffic Shapper and Captive Portal in same time?
2. is config with 3 NIC possible and behind router possible?
3. if computers are connected to ACCESS POINT by wireless router with APC mode (WISP) can it make some problem for Captive Portal?
Access Point Client Mode – for instance – router with 1xWAN, 4xLAN and AP. If it has APC mode. Wireless interface in the router act as WAN interface. In this case MAC addresses of computers conncected via LAN aren’t forwarded.
Ok now I have understood.
The answer is that you can use the captive portal also if the mac addresses of the clients are not forwarded. In this case you need to select the option “Only IP” for the “Client Identity”.
OK but I think hosts will be behind the router so Access Point (and ZS) will see only the IP which is on the WAN (Wireless) interface, ZS will be not able to see IP and MAC addresses of specific hosts on LAN interface. (?)
btw. making traffic shapping with L7 an then limited bandwidth per IP in router isn’t wrong solution?
