Dead simple open source Hotspot Management System
EasyHotspot is an alternative solution for hotspot billing system. Its contains other particular open source software that is bundled into one a single package. We don't try to make a replacement to similar existing open source projects. Our aim is to deliver a system that simple, easy to install, use and modify. EasyHotspot comes with ready to use configuration. You need less configuration to build a running hotspot. It will save you time and energy.
EasyHotspot is developed on the top of Ubuntu distribution. The hotspot manager frontend used to manage your hotspot is built from Codeigniter framework. Codeigniter is an blazing fast PHP framework which easy to understand and its very handy to make a web bassed application. We hope everyone can easily understand and make an improvement to the code. FreeRADIUS will help us to perform AAA process. The Captive Portal that is used for authenticating users is Chillispot, and the database / MySQL, it used for storing the users and logs information.
Who's gonna need it ? Anyone who wants to build a hotspot or someone who willing to learn how hotspot works. . For example : Cafe, Hotel, School, Public place, and anywhere that requires wireless internet connection.
