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.
