    How to use a Jotform as a public Wifi access form?

    Asked by HerbieMartin on March 08, 2017 at 11:06 AM

    I'd like to use a Jotform to capture e-mail and other information from our users who connect to our free public Wifi. This needs them to enter the data before being allowed onto the general internet.

    We're using a Unifi system which would appear to allow this if we can program IP and subnet details to restrict internet access to those areas before full access is granted to the users.

    Do you know if this is possible and if so, what would the relevant IPs etc be?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Hello HerbieMartin,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to display a form as soon as they try to connect to your free Wifi. Is that correct?

    I am not sure how to achieve this as you will need internet access to access any of your form. I would suggest you to please take a look at your Wifi router and see if that allows any such feature to display any webpage before authentication.

    Thank you!

    Hi Ashwin,

    Sorry if I didn't explain the issue properly. Our system allows us to restrict access on the internet to specific IP addresses. So we CAN allow our users to access the form if we can identify all of the addresses/ranges that the form might call for.

    Would you be able to identify these for us?

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Regards,

    Herbie martin

    Unfortunately, Our IP addresses keeps constantly changes. That's why, the only thing I can suggest you is to embed your form to a website and make that website accessible only. Hope, these would help you.
