Description:

When using the Public Spot in conjunction with sending the login credentials via E-mail it can be useful to prevent logins from certain E-mail domains (Blacklist) or to allow logins only from certain domains (Whitelist).

This article describes how the Email domains can be configured and which characteristics have to be considered.


Requirements:


Using the Email domains as a Blacklist:

If logins from certain E-mail domains are to be prevented, these have to be entered in the Blacklist.

1) Open the configuration of the device in LANconfig, go to the menu Public-Spot → Email and make sure the option Use domain table as is set to Blacklist

Ex factory the setting Blacklist is used. Without entering Email domains logins from any domain are possible.

2) Go to the menu Email domains

3) Create a new entry and enter a domain which should be blocked (in this example the domain email-provider.com).

Repeat this step for additional domains if necessary.

4) The configuration of the Blacklist is complete. Write the configuration back into the device.



Using the Email domains as a Whitelist:

If only logins from certain E-mail domains are to be allowed, these have to be entered in the Whitelist.

1) Open the configuration of the device in LANconfig, go to the menu Public-Spot → Email and select Whitelist in the drop-down menu at the option Use domain table as

If the domain table is used as a Whitelist, but no domains are entered no login is possible at all!

2) Go to the menu Email domains

3) Create a new entry and enter a domain which should be allowed (in this example the domain email-provider.com).

Repeat this step for additional domains if necessary.

4) The configuration of the Whitelist is complete. Write the configuration back into the device.
