Stupid question: I have an apple airport express base station. Is it possible to use that as the guest interface in Control? If so, how?

Documentation about guest interfaces doesn't mention actual hardware. http://manuals.gfi.com/en/kerio/control/content/server-confi guration-kerio-control/configuring-the-guest-network-1654.ht ml

Thanks
Eric

Yes. You need to define a network interface in Kerio Control as a guest network interface by moving it to the Guest interfaces group. Then connect that interface directly to your Airport express (LAN port).

Right...did that before posting. Devices connected to it (via previously saved connection) don't see a guest welcome page, don't get prompted for the password I setup in KC, and don't get served an IP address using the scope I defined for that interface.

So, something is obviously not setup correctly.

OK figured it out. DHCP scope was incomplete.



Now, are is there documentation anywhere about separating guest wifi from company internal wifi? Does this require a separate interface if I want devices to be able to access the LAN from WIFI?

Also, is there a need to have a password on the WAP *and* on Kerio Control guest network? Is one sufficient? If so, which one?

If you want to have a protected WiFi you'll need a separate interface and wireless network for that.
Regarding the wireless password, generally you should assign a password to your wireless network even if Internet access is gated at the firewall. Otherwise traffic on your wireless network is unencrypted and any person in range can join and see what's happening on your guest LAN.

Thanks Brian. So the password option in KC is only for access and not encryption.
