    Yeah, would be much better, again, I have seen a demo of a rival managed wireless system that does offer the facility of a seperate IP Range straight from the controller on Guest Networks.

    Hopefully Ruckus have picked up on this and will include it. I have seen somewhere on the Ruckus Forums a mention of somebody requesting the facilty to set DHCP options based on the Wireless SSID they connect to, so that should do the trick.

    We have this solved for Windows+IE guests, in that we set some DHCP options so that the clients get a wpad.dat from the ISA server. We then used GPOs/login scripts to stop our non-guest (managed) PCs from using "automatically detect settings" and manually specified the address of our proxy server as you are probably doing already.

    Non-windows+IE guests don't seem to pick up the autodetect settings stuff reliably, so we have to tell them to enter the location of the wpad.dat file. This works fine for iphones/ipod touches. Android phones are currently sadly still too dumb to allow access via authenticating proxies.

    we did something similar, we created a ruckus vlan called guest, it uses active directory to authorise the user, the person then has to close internet explorer and reopen it and the smoothwall then asks for a username and password.

    It works but having to login twice is a pain as the smoothwall login page requires the domain name to be in front of the username but the ruckus login page does not.

    Yeah, I've also got it running for Guests using the WPAD.DAT file which is dished out from DHCP. Seems to be working well, Guest users can't access anything they shouldn't, but I would be happier if the ZoneDirector could manage a seperate DHCP scope for guest users based on the SSID name so it was all seperate.

    Maybe in the furture an update will allow this.

    Has anyone managed to get the new auto detect proxy feature working on Ruckus? If so, any chance you could copy and paste the info from your WPAD.dat file here.

    Thanks very much in advance.

    Take a look at the following site FindProxyForURL.com - PAC & WPAD Resource

    It has a WPAD tutorial for IIS, DHCP and DNS also. I'm in the process of having a go myself!!

    Hi Randle,

    Managed to get this working. The wpad.dat is built into Smoothwall so we just used that.

    If you need a copy of mine to help, let me know.

    Hi ronnoco. Great to hear. I managed to find an example PAC file which I'm attempting to use deploy using Ruckus as don't have Smoothwall here. Just need to configure DHCP and DNS now.

    Thanks anyway.
