I'm looking in to different options for creating guest access accounts and need some help. I'm new to the product and bascially have been asked if there are any other options that the Web GUI to create account. We would like trigger the creation of an account using work flow. Saw that there are We services availble with NAC but not sure how the products relate
It's a new setup - so assume the latest verion of WCS is being used.
NAC Guest user can integrate with your Wireless Controllers, so that can work for you.
Or you can use WCS, however there is no API capability on that one, you have to go through the GUI.
couple of thoughts as I'm going through the process of setting up guest access right now.
1) use RADIUS and maintain the accounts through a RADIUS solution that provides the UI you desire.
2) another thread somewhere here pointed to http://sourceforge.net/projects/simple-swag/ which is a web-based user account creator.
3) use an external authentication page and perform the auth there.
we don't require guests to have accounts but we do limit when it is available at our various locations.
