Softvision Explorer is
able to transform your location into a Hotspot which conforms completely
to the anti-terrorism laws. Your customers can connect directly to the
internet using their laptops (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, etc.), PDA, mobile
phones and any kind of device which has a wireless network card and a
Wireless connections take place through an open Access Point (wireless router). There is therefore no protection (WEP etc.) to make the wireless networks secure. The server on which Explorer Manager is installed has the task of only allowing connections made by users who have a username and password.
Now let us see which operations a user needs to carry out to connect to a Hotspot. When customers are within range of an Access Point at your location, their computers are automatically able to find the wireless network and connect to it. For this to be successful, the customer’s wireless network card must be set up to obtain the IP address and DNS server automatically.
Now the customer should open a page on the browser and will be automatically re-directed to the page http://192.168.1.2/login.htm which looks like this :
WI-FI network Access
After entering username and password obtained from the registration, customer will be shown a page like this:
