Your members can use our RADIUS integration to log in to your wifi/network using their Cobot credentials. This lets you control who has internet access, automatically keeps track of time pass consumption for part-time or drop-in members, and provides you with valuable insights regarding the usage of your coworking space.
It can also play an important role in your emergency preparedness protocols and legal compliance. Depending on your location or insurance policy, your space may have an obligation to track who is present at all times. Use RADIUS to securely automate your members’ check-ins.
We provide a RADIUS server that your (wifi) router must be able to communicate with. There are two ways of setting this up. The capabilities of your network devices will determine which one you can use.
WPA2 Enterprise replaces the shared wifi password you used before. Instead of a dialog asking them for the wifi password, people are presented with a dialog requesting a login and password. They will use their Cobot credentials to complete the log in.
Please check your router’s manual, and if you are still unsure consult a network specialist. The following vendors are known to provide routers and software that can be used with our RADIUS offering:
To set up RADIUS, go to Setup » Wifi Integration in your Cobot account and sign up for the 30-day free trial. This will give you access to your RADIUS server credentials.
Our integration supports the following RADIUS protocols:
This depends on your router, so please check your manual. If you are unsure about what to do, please consult a network specialist.
In general, you’ll need to activate the router’s captive portal feature or enable WPA2 Enterprise and configure it to authenticate against the RADIUS server(s) provided by Cobot.
If your router does not support changing the RADIUS port, the authentication can also be done on the default port (9112) if you send the actual port using a RADIUS attribute "NAS-ID (NAS-Identifier)." If that doesn't work either, contact us and we can run an extra server for you using the default port (at an additional cost).
After that, your members should see a login page when they try to access the internet. By entering their Cobot login credentials, they will get access.
This only applies to spaces using a captive portal.
To allow your users to visit important websites without logging in (e.g. to sign up for Cobot and enter payment information from within your space), you should whitelist the following domains in your router:
