Enabling Selected Users to Skip Captive Portal Login based on Client Device
How to enable selected users to skip captive portal login in the future by adding their device's MAC address to a device authentication system.
Find the MAC address of the device(s) you want to automatically login.
Copy the device MAC address.
Add the MAC address to a device authentication system.
From the "Authentication" menu under "CONFIG", select an existing device authentication system or create a new one. Paste the device's MAC address into the "MAC Address" field, and name it. Click on "Add New Device Authentication" to update the device database.
NOTE: you can give the device a new name, or keep its current name. Reports differentiate the device based on the authentication system used. For example, "Bob's iPhone" manually logged in using the "204 Users" authentication system in the report, above.
Apply the device authentication system to Sputnik-powered device(s).
Make sure that your device authentication system is applied as an authentication system override to the Sputnik-powered device(s) where the user's device will be logging in. For more information, see the online documentation chapter titled "Authenticating Devices without Web Browsers".
