Synchronize password with PSK of wireless network (Password of the Day) + Bridged to Vlan

Hi guys,

I've been trying unsuccessfully for some time to enable the "Synchronize password with PSK of wireless networks" option on a WLAN network.

The environment looks like this:

UTM SG 135 9.705
AP55

interface: WLAN-GUEST (VLAN 2174)

Accesspoint VLAN: 2049

Wireless-Network:
Network name: wlan-guest
SSID: Guest
Encryption Mode: WPA2 Personal
PSK: Temp. PW
Client Traffic: Bridge to VLAN
Bridge to VLAN ID: 2174

Hotspot:
Name: Guest
Interfaces: WLAN-GAST
Hotspot Typer: Password of the Day
Synchronize password with PSK of wireless networks: Enabled
Users have to accept terms of use: Enabled


The Password of the Day is not taken over as PSK for the WLAN guest.The self-set one still works.

Creating the WLAN network without PSK was not successful either.

Is the synchronization with the Bridged to VLAN mode not compatible?

Thanks for the help






  • Hallo Tommy and welcome to the UTM Community!

    This only works with "Separate Zone" Wireless Networks.  You can then bridge the wlan# virtual NIC in the VLAN in Interfaces.  Glück gehabt?

    Cheers - Bob

  • Hallo Bob,

    First, thank you for your answer.

    II have now added a wireless network with the Seprate Zone mode.

    Now I can create a new interface (wlan3) under Interfaces and give it a VLAN in Ethernet VLAN mode.

    However, the target VLAN arrives at the UTM on ETH4 of the switch. How do I now specify that this VLAN of wlan3 arrives at ETH4?

    The AP Mmgmt is also on eth4 with another VLAN. Does the UTM bridge the VLAN in Seprate Zone mode to the hardware interface where the AP also arrives at the UTM?

  • Ahh, Tommy, I forgot - there's no such thing as a VLAN bridge in WebAdmin.  This situation seems complex.  What is it you're trying to accomplish by bridging the AP with a particular VLAN?  Maybe there's a better solution or maybe you can't use the 'Synchronize password with PSK' option.

    Cheers - Bob
