Core Modules

The Captivnet managed mode was designed to make the powerful and complex features accessible to all whilst adding a security and compliance wrap. Captivnet manages the following core modules:

Interfaces
Network
Passthrough
DNS
Load Balancing
QOS
Routes
Firewall
VPN
Proxy
Logging - System
Logging - Lawful Intercept
SNMP
Admin

Flow

The M3 (Mikrotik Managed Mode) uses a poll update scheme. It’s Mikrotik that will contact Captivnet on a regular interval to update it’s configuration.

Advantages

  • No public IP requirement
  • No complex VPN requirement
  • Auto healing
    • When Captivnet is not reachable the gateway will fall back to no authentication

Support Modes

  • Standalone
  • Active/passive
  • Active/Active (using 2 LAN networks)
  • N- node active/active
