Hi @Meow_Meow,

 

No.  The Omada Server or OC-200 is required to manage vouchers.  Generally end users should not be connecting directly to a CPE -- these are generally used for point to point WISP applications.

@JSchnee21 I mean, I already have an OC200 but then I saw the EAP 225 Wall and saw that it had multiple ports, so I just thought, What would happen if I plug a CPE 510 in one of those ports? will it act just like a normal router?

Hi @Meow_Meow,

 

Yes, you can connect the EAP225-Wall to a CPE.

 

There are four different ways you can configure the CPE -- see the refernece guide.-- it describes them better than I can.

 

1) as an air PTP link only -- a wireless bridge acting like a long wire

2) as a PTP link and AP -- acting as a bridge and an AP for wireless clients (using the DHCP and routing from the network it's bridged to)

3) as a router and PTP Link / AP when hardwired to another network -- performing NAT & DHCP for local clients  -- like your home broadband router

4) as a router and PTP Link / AP when wirelessly connected to another network -- performing NAT & DHCP for local clients 

 

So for example, you could use option 4 if you have multiple buildings connected through PTP air links back to a central point, but you want each building to have it's own DHCP subnet.

 

I don't think the CPE does anything with vouchers (though I could be wrong).  Either way clients have to get back to Omada, I believe.

 

What are you trying to do?  Uplink your Wall AP's back to another building via CPE?

thanks for the explanation, I actually had a CF E312A as PTP and a CF EW72 and that I was able to use its bridge mode to allow vouchers and it worked, I was hoping that EAP 225 Wall could do the same with its ports, I actually prefer TP-link than using Comfast for that but I'm not sure if it can do that, hopefully, it could.

Hi @Meow_Meow,

 

I think the TP-Link products can work for you.  It's just that you need to run the Omada software on a PC 24x7, or get an OC-200 to run it in order to support the captive portal / voucher setup.

IIRC, the ports of EAP225-WALL are just downlinks bridged to the uplink port, thus they do not provide portal/voucher functionality.
