Captive Portal allows administrators to block internet access for users until they complete a defined process. With Captive Portal you can:
Require users to view or accept an Acceptable Use Policy before accessing the internet (e.g. public WiFi).
Authenticate users against Untangle's Local Directory, RADIUS or Microsoft Active Directory (requires Directory Connector).
Separate mobile devices to a different rack with different policies for BYOD (bring your own device) environments. Captive pages can be displayed by operating system and/or device type.
Show different captive portal pages to wireless and wired users.
Show a warning page when the user goes over quota or is added to the penalty box for bad behavior.
Have special captive pages for specific sites.
Enable custom integrations from acknowledging Acceptable Use Policies (AUP) to accepting payments for wi-fi hotspot access.
