Yes both scenarios are possible.

In the scenario you wish to use, the Auth server needs to have a web
facing, static IP address (dynamic can be used in conjunction with a
service like dyndns). The routers (or nodes) connect to it like they
would a hosted website.

Subject: [isf-wifidog] wifidog architecture question


my question is this, if i setup an auth server in my office, and i
setup hotspots with only modified linksys routers at other locations,
can the routers connect across the open internet (no vpn) back to the
auth server to show the splash screen and operate normally?  Or does
the auth server need to be in the same location as the hotspots?

I am hoping to centralize the management of about a 100 hotspots, but
i dont really see a document that i understand to show this scenario.
Or maybe its just so obvious i am missing it.

any help is appreciated.
