I have connected a NAS to my RUT955, and I want to share the contents that are on that NAS with the users of the RUT's WIFI/HOTSPOT network.

The application will be only on the local wireless network, i.e. without internet.

When I connect to the SSID of the WIFI network, I can access the NAS (localhost), but I can't do it through the HOTSPOT.

I have created a VLAN, between the HOTSPOT and the LAN ports, where the NAS is, but it does not work.

To restrict access, users must first authenticate on the hotspot.

Any suggestions?

Regards

Hello,

Hotspot by design tries its best to isolate the clients from each other and only provide internet access. This is not a solution for this kind of setup.

I would recommend just setting up firewall rules to allow/deny access to certain features.

Thanks

Another option could be to connect the NAS as a DHCP web server to the WAN port of the router, and from there give access to the hotspot users. Is this possible?

Additionally, could I provide internet service through the mobile interface?

Yeah, that could be an option that should work as that would be a WAN connection.

Internet is for the hotspot users is available by default

You can run "official" openwrt on the RUT955. Which gives you much more options to fulfill your requirements, which are not very special.

Will need some research or development work, though.
