How to Set Up a Captive Portal UniFi

A captive portal unifi allows you to create a wireless network with restricted internet access for guests. Users connect to the wireless network with a voucher or other login method and are required to look at (and usually agree) to your terms of service before they can use the internet. The portal is a great way to collect contact information, increase brand awareness, and encourage return visits.

What is the IP address of UniFi login?

A simple captive portal asks the user to fill out a form or view an ad before they can access the internet, but more advanced captive portals can do much more. For example, they can allow the user to select a language and display content in that selected language. This can be very beneficial for businesses that serve customers from multiple countries and regions.

To set up a captive portal, you need a UniFi controller. Ubiquiti network access points are available for purchase directly from Ubiquiti Store, through their distributors, and also at major retailers such as Amazon, B&H, Walmart, etc. Once the controller is set up, you can register the access point to work with the captive portal.

To do this, you need to poke a hole in the LAN Management network so that the UniFi controller can communicate with the Guest Wireless network and vice-versa. For this, the DHCP server needs to be configured to forward traffic on a specific port (8880 or 8843). This is a relatively easy process and can be done using a standard web browser.
