Hotspots map not shown when unauthenticated

Reported by: max-horvath Owned by: max-horvath
Priority: low Milestone: WifiDog Auth Server 1.0
Component: Auth server, Other Version: Auth Server SVN
Keywords: authentication, google maps, firewall Cc:


When a user wants to have alook at the hotspots map of the WiFiDog auth server before logging in, he's unable to view it.

We should either check which server of google must be unblocked in the wifidog.conf or disable the hotspots map feature for unauthenticated users on the auth server ...

  • version changed from Gateway SVN to Auth Server SVN
  • type changed from Bug report to Feature Request
  • milestone Gateway 1.1.3 deleted

Disabling the hotspot map for unauthenticated users, but only at a hotspot is probably the best we can hope for. The price for depending on an external service. Note that this makes it a auth server RFE, not a gateway bug.

Well, I was thinking about opening the firewall to the google ips which are linked to maps.google.com ... that's why I assigned it to the gateway ...

But as this would allow to surf normal google pages for unauthenticated users the best we should do is to don't show the Google maps pages to unauthenticated users at all ...
