Dear @indigo,

thanks for the beta-version. I just installed it to test the features of the hotspot voucher portal:

 

Coming from 3.x going trough v4.2.11 I migrated to 5.2.4 (beta). Seems to work this way but all the already created vouchers get "Client Duration" as default value. But for us it should be "Voucher Duration" - any ideas how to change that?

 

Thank you for your valuable feedback. For "Client Duration", each new connected client using the same voucher code to get authenticated can have Internet access for a same duration time. While for "Voucher Duration", once the first client has used the voucher code to get authenticated, the duration countdown begins and the voucher code will be expired after the duration time is up no mater how late other clients get authenticated.

 

The previous controller version seems to adopt the "Client Duration" mechanism, so all your previously created vouchers get "Client Duration" as default value. Sorry that I don't find the option to change them to "Voucher Duration" either.

Dear @abhi182,

Has the WAN fail over issue been sorted out? 

 

To elaborate, er605 in standalone mode supports custom pings to detect WAN status. This works for failover if primary wan goes down. 

In omada managed mode, this option is not available and the default online detection fails to detect WAN outage on the primary for static IP wan setups 

 

Sorry for any trouble caused. I'm afraid that the Manual option for Online Detection hasn't been added on Controller v5.2 yet.

I've recorded this to the developer team for further confirmation.

Thank you for your support. At present, all of our community users have the access to the Beta testing.

 

I'll actively update this post once there is a new controller version available, including the Beta edition, welcome to subscribe!

  @Fae Thanks for your reply.

As I already described in my thread https://community.tp-link.com/en/business/forum/topic/533962?replyId=1065068 the behaviour of the previous versions is strange and for a reasonable usage of the voucher function "Voucher Duration" should be the default state. I cannot imagine a usagecase for "Client Duration", especially when switching MAC-adresses of the device.

  @Fae today I've deployed new wireless network using omada's beta map and it's features, the result is excellent. There are probably thousands of things which one would suggest to be added, like ability to draw single/duplex cables (by possibility to choose color too, I use orange for duplex, black outdoor etc..). That is the only which actually is not given and one requires external application. My second suggestion would be to ignore first suggestion and add "Import devices from topology" where current toplogy with wired cables is placed on a map and one can move devices and clients instead of drawing them (empty ports of router and managed switches should be shown too)

 

I used the map mainly to analyse to coverage and to find best place to place mesh clients to a distance of 50-150m, where the word "find" is obsolete as it perfectly worked from first click and all deployed ap's have best possible connections, there are no dead holes as well as ap's (except few indoor) are placed mostly over distance 50-100. The tool spared me quite a lot hassle and time for measuring/walking/finding/... .

 

I do draw plan's if there are no or import existing plans (like landscape) as long as they are available, for private users, they mostly have no clue if there is one plan and if, then where it is, by that one has to measure everything manually and create own plan. What I only had to do is, I imported 2D plan svg, added devices and simulated, worked perfectly and without any issues.

  @Fae 

I have recently bought a brand new EAP610-Outdoor connected via WIFI only.

Sadly it is loosing  connectivity with the "Channel Limit" enabled.

 

As i did not test with v5.1.7 I do not know if it is only a Beta version problem.

What channel do you use on root EAP? when enable channel limit is ch100 the lowest on outdoor EAP, if you have root ap on ch36 they newer could speak to each other.

  @shberge 

Thanks for fast response!

Everything is set to use channel "Auto"

In fact the Indoor AP (Uplink) is using channel 44. Also with channel limit enabled - it is keeping this setting.

If I understand you correctly, I have to set the channel to over 100 manually?
