Purpose

This guide shows how to configure an Open Mesh Access Point for SpotOn.

 

Prerequisites

Log in to your CloudTrax account. It is recommended to update your device firmware to the latest available version.

 

You will require a RADIUS password and a Custom URL from the SpotOn Support team. Chat with us, send an e-mail ([email protected]) or give us a call (050 211 5201).

 

Network Setup

To setup your access point go to Configure and select an SSID. Enable it and set a name for it:

1 ssid 300x124 - Open Mesh

Select its authentication settings (Open or WPA Pre-shared key/Enterprise). Under Captive Portal enable Splash Page:

2 captive 300x177 - Open Mesh

Select “Hosted remotely” as the Splash page type. Splash page URL and secret should be as follows:

Splash page URL: https://portal.spotonwifi.com/auth/vendor/[CUSTOM ID]/open_mesh
Splash page secret: wo8UQBv2emoBsyrQKqs6fMFmN3wWhTbu

Note: SpotOn support can provide you your CUSTOM ID.

Select RADIUS as the Splash page authentication type and enter the following parameters:

Server address 1: 94.124.94.160
Server secret: Ask the SpotOn team for the RADIUS password

“Enable Failsafe Mode” should be disabled and “Block unauthenticated users” should be enabled:
