Wright State has predefined accounts that you are assigned to for 24 hour at public places such as the library.  They 
photo copy your ID and write the account name on the paper.  Patricia Vendt is the contact  patricia.vendt () wright edu

Tagging onto this thread (I checked the archives and see 12/2006 threads on "open access to student labs" and "public 
access library ports", but don't see other threads on specific vendor solutions in support of guest access in a 
'private network' sense).


Does anyone have information on a vendor-provided solution to manage guest accounts?  We plan to implement across 
campus, as Virginia Tech seems to have done.  I like the VA Tech system's ability for a guest to create their own 
account and request departmental approval --- that off-loads some of the setup to the person requesting access.

We use Cisco Clean Access and can feed the accounts to CCA, once created.  I had planned to manage them elsewhere, in a 
system designed for that.

We've had a guest wireless implementation solution (homegrown) for a couple of
years now. See http://wireless.cns.vt.edu and look at the "Guest Access"
section.

Hi,

We're planning to offer guest wireless access at our Conference Center.
  Several questions have come up as to how much information we need to
collect from guests, and how long we would need to retain the
information.  We were wondering what other schools are doing in this
regard.  Any information you would share with us would be greatly
appreciated.

Thanks.

        -John
