HotSpot Software -  User Accounts


There are 3 ways to grant Internet access to computers in your network:
Using Accounts that specify the IP or MAC of a computer. If an IP/MAC is found in the database, the computer is logged in and displayed in the list
Autologin - If enabled, a computer is logged in with default options (download, upload, quota, time etc)
Using Antamedia Internet Caffe Server to fully automate the login/logout process. As soon as Member, Timecode or postpaid session is started, Server will communicate with Bandwidth Manager and allow Internet access to the computer where the customer started their session. At the end of the session, access is blocked to the same computer, disabling any Internet traffic. This can reduce bandwidth if some online game has remained active or if viruses, spyware or trojans are consuming your bandwidth
