Make AuthPuppy a compatible authentication server for the Open Mesh system

Registered by gbastien on 2010-06-23

Open-Mesh is a system used for meshing nodes... The wifidog client is not implemented in the Open-Mesh image.

But open-mesh supports a few authentication servers from different services and we would like AuthPuppy to be one of those. It means there are some facilities in Open-mesh to act as a captive portal.

The idea would be to find out what protocols these servers use and make AuthPuppy support it. That would mean no porting of wifidog client to open-mesh, just add a plugin to the server and voilĂ !

Whiteboard

Currently in the process of looking into the feasibility of this.

After all, porting wifidog to the open-mesh firmware wouldn't such a bad idea since there seems to be no http protocol on the open-mesh. Thought the coova-chilli http proxy would do the trick, but it is not part of open-mesh firmware.
