INTRODUCTION TO RADIUSDESK WITH RHEL/CENTOS 6.X (Mini Course)

Written by Mfawa Alfred Onen on . Posted in Courses, Linux

Hey lads, its been a while since I recorded any screencast and I must say that this is due to work. If you remember, I did a screencast on setting up RADIUSdesk with CentOS and at that time, it was a pre-alpha release. I and Dirk van der Walt have decided to bring a new Video Course on Introduction to RADIUSdesk with RHEL/CentOS 6.x which will focus on setting up RADIUSdesk on CentOS including all the new technologies (Node.js, SocketIO, ExtJS etc). We hope you guys enjoy this mini course and if you do have a problem along the way while following this videos, kindly use the comment form below and we will get back to you. The Agenda/Topics in this course are:

CoovaChilli Setup on CentOS 6

Written by Mfawa Alfred Onen on . Posted in Linux, Networking

Following the recent YFi Hotspot Manager Screencasts, we continue by setting up the CoovaChilli captive portal software on CentOS 6.  The video assumes you have followed the YFi Hotspot Manager procedure outline in the previous Screencast. Also, I pointed out some minor tweaks made to correct some errors when creating (building) the CoovaChilli RPM.

Let me know what you think in the comments. Cheers!
