    Default Licensed Devices

    I'm trying to get a handle on the licensing aspect of Untangle. When I click on Devices from the dashboard and the sort by Hostname, I'm able to see a sumary of devices. What's weird is that qch Apple device (iPhone or iPad) shows 2 mac addresses with the second being "CaptiveNetworkSupport-xxxx wispr" for each.

    My question is what constitutes a license? I have webcams and access points on the network that don't necessarily benefit from Untangle but I assume are eating up licenses. Can someone explain the concept and how one can "exclude" devices from licenses? Thanks

    Click on "Hosts" in the upper tab - anything that is marked as "active" is counted as an active device.

    "Devices" is irrelevant - its just all known devices of all time. It doesn't mean they are active.

    Ok, so devices showing up as active are not here. For example, my son's iPhone. He's back at college. Also, a desktop that's powered iff is showing as active. Lease time is 3600 seconds

    Devices don't have an "active" column - only Hosts.

    Are you are a home subscription?
    Unlike our other subs its not done by device count. Its for residential non-commercial use.

    Yes. Home but my next install is commercial, restaurant/bar. For the free wifi there, would I simply route all the access points back to a particular eth port and then exclude that eth port using bypass?

    Bypass by source address for a device for a whole range bypass interface

    That's what I do with all my public hotspots, I put the public wifi on its own IP range and setup a bypass rule and use source address against that IP range.

    You can also do source interface if you have a NIC dedicated to the process, but I don't like doing that as much because it's not as tolerant of future expansion.

    I'm posting to get final clarification. I want the devices who connect through "Public" to bypass. I don't want these tying up license seats. 1) what would be a downside of doing this? 2) what would the bypass rule look like?
