Walled garden only IP Adress Possible

Hi,

Why is it the default that in the Wireless Access Control Settings, we can only enter IP Adress in the Walled garden?

I know that if you open a case you can ask that URL entry possibility is activate. I don't understand why IP id the default and not URL. 

 

Regards Michel

Possibly because an URL requires DNS and if you forget to whitelist DNS, then you cannot get past the walled garden. To "idiot-proof" this, you require an IP address instead.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the feedback, I understand the Answer, still think it is more Easy to add all the necessary URL's that the IP.

 

Thanks Michel
