How to Configure Voucher Authentication on Omada Controller
This article applies to Omada Controller 4.1.5 or above.
Voucher authentication is a simple type of portal authentication, with which you can generate random voucher codes in Omada Controller and hand them out to clients. Then clients can use these vouchers to pass the portal authentication and access the network. It is especially convenient to use Voucher authentication in places such as café, restaurant and hotel.
This document introduces how to configure Voucher authentication.
