I’m planning on using one of my Cores at work, where I’d have to connect to the local visitor WiFi network.
This will require in-browser authentication on a “Captive Portal”.
So I first set up the SSID for the open WiFi net, and get the Core connected to the WiFi channel, but all traffic gets captured by the portal, till the Core authenticates itself against the portal with an additional User/Password set.
This would normally be done manually by opening a browser that displays the portal login page, the user enters the credentials and from then on the traffic is released into the outside world.
Now with the Core I have no browser to enter credentials into, but I could imagine, that the incoming HTML could get forwarded to my phone or some other device (that is already connected to the network), where I could enter the credentials, send the response back to the Core who relays it back to the network - a bit like the first time connection of the Core to a new WiFi network with SSID/PWD works.
Is this thinkable and maybe possible to incorporate into Tinker app or any other Spark SW that is required for getting a Core connected to a network?
