Can you bypass Unifi voucher by using ethernet cable instead of AP.

Hi,

Sorry I couldn't think how to word my subject better..

 

I'm setting up wifi in 3 cabins.

I'm using a Unifi AC lite in each cabin

The ethernet cables from each cabin run to a comms shed.

I have a poe switch, cloud key (possibly a USG) and 4g modem plus antenna.

 

My question is..

 

If a customer unplugs the Unifi AP and users the ethernet cable for internet will they still get the Vocher splash screen to enter their voucher number when they open their browser?

 

Thanks

Brent

Hello @brent247,

 

They will be on the same subnet as the UAPs and will have most likely internet connection without a voucher.

If your naitive vlan is guest, maybe. (Then the AP have to be set correct with wifi no tag, and the AP need to management vlan on somthing else).

Else, no.

Hello @AmazedMender16

Is there a way to apply Vouchers or data restrictions for direct cable connections to the switch?

Does my cloud key see this connection? or a managed switch?

 

Thanks

Thanks @nu2ubiq

These look interesting, thanks. they look like they are totaly independent of any hardware already installed? 

I cannot easily change the ethernet wall plugs so would need to be able to plug into exhisting outlet, I can change the cable end though. 

 

thanks

What you want is some sort of port security, mac auth will he easiest if you're not worried about mac spoofing.

The connectors are independent of any Ethernet wall plate. They just lock the Ethernet cable.
