FortiAP

If you manage your FortiAP from the cloud, you can easily configure Social WiFi on the controller.

RADIUS Server

First, go to Wireless->Configuration->My RADIUS Server->Add RADIUS server. Add two servers as follows:
The login "pattern" for Test Connectivity is: test_RADIUS,
where RADIUS is the Radius Secret available in Access Points tab of the Social WiFi Panel.
For password use the same credential.
​
For example, if my Radius Secret is "myradiussecret", my login would be "test_myradiussecret".

Adding the APs to Social WiFi Panel

In order to add a device to Social WiFi platform:
  • Access your account in the Social WiFi Panel.
  • Choose the correct venue to which you would like to add the device.
  • In the “Access Points” tab, press “Add” (upper right corner), paste the MAC address you copied into the form (adding a name is optional) and click “Create”.

Test the solution

Connect with the WiFi network. You should see a login page. Go through the login process and, once finished, you should have internet access. You should see first connections and authorisations in the Social WiFi Panel’s statistics section.
