Ticket #466 (closed Feature Request: fixed)
Running several instances of wifidog gateway
|Reported by:||v_w_us@…||Owned by:|
|Priority:||normal||Milestone:||Not yet assigned to a Milestone|
We want to run our wifidog gateway server listening to several subnets. Each subnet is completely independent (users in one subnet must not see other subnets).
Currently it is not possible to run several instances of wifidog gateway in the same server, because iptables chain names clash.
In addition, NAT/masquerading rules must be active before launching wifidog gateway. This poses a potential security problem in case wifidog crashes: non authenticated users would have access to the network.
To address these issues, we are proposing some patches implementing these new features:
- Adding a prefix to the iptables chain names
- Adding support to activate a default NAT route
Such features have been added to the config file, leaving wifidog functionality intact in case they are not used.
How should we proceed to submit these patches for your revision? We are very much interested in these new features being included in wifidog gateway.
Thanks in advance...
