Plug-In Settings

Applies To: Wi-Fi Cloud-managed Access Points (AP120, AP125, AP225W, AP320, AP322, AP325, AP327X, AP420)

On the Plug-In Settings page, you can configure how a guest user logs in to your network from the portal splash page.

If you enable any of these plug-in options, you must enable and configure the corresponding option in the portal configuration in Analyze. If you do not configure these options in Analyze, these options you have enabled in a splash page in Engage may be ignored and result in an insecure configuration.

Passcode through SMS

The SMS plug-in enables a guest to obtain an Internet access code through SMS on a mobile device number and use this code to access the Internet. If the SMS plug-in is configured on the portal, guests can enter the mobile number where they want to receive a passcode.

You must configure the SMS plug-in in Analyze. For more information, see Configure Portal SMS Plug-In.

You can use the Web Form plug-in on your portal to make sure the guest provides personal information, such as an email address, before Internet access is allowed.

Select the fields that the user must complete on the Web Form. You can choose the fields to display and the fields that are mandatory. If required, enable a passphrase for guest users.

Access can be allowed with or without authentication. You can set a common passphrase in the portal configuration in Analyze that guest users must provide for authentication. For more information, see Configure Portal Web Form Plug-In.

If you enable a Webform passphrase for guest users on the splash page in Engage, you must configure the passphrase in the portal configuration in Analyze. If you do not configure a passphrase, this field will be ignored and guest users can access the portal without a passphrase.

Splash Page Web Form Settings


With the RADIUS plug-in, guest users can obtain access to the wireless network with their username and password configured on a RADIUS server. Guests are authenticated by the RADIUS server that communicates the authentication results to Wi-Fi Cloud devices.

You cannot use other plug-ins at the same time as the RADIUS plug-in. Either the RADIUS plug-in or the other selected plug-ins will be active based on the Wi-Fi profile configured for a splash page.

You must configure the RADIUS plug-in in Analyze. For more information, see Configure Portal RADIUS Plug-In.
