Walled Garden

Sub-menu: /ip hotspot walled-garden


HTTP walled-garden menu permits authentication bypass settings for HTTP and HTTPs resources.

Wildcard properties (dst-host and path) match a complete string (i.e., they will not match "example.com" if they are set to "example"). Available wildcards are '*' (match any number of any characters) and '?' (match any one character). Regular expressions are also accepted here, but if the property should be treated as a regular expression, it should start with a colon (':'). To show that no symbols are allowed before the given pattern, we use ^ symbol at the beginning of the pattern. To specify that no symbols are allowed after the given pattern, we use $ symbol at the end of the pattern.

Example

To only permit bypassed access in walled garden to "www.example.com/test" but not to "www.example.com/test/test.php" :

/ip hotspot walled-garden
add dst-host=:^www.example.com path=":/test\$"

(note the trailing $ requires the escape character '\' to stop it from be processed as an actual $ character in the url)

Example

When adding walled garden IP entry several dynamic rules are created. For example, lets add www.paypalobject.com

/ip hotspot walled-garden ip
add action=accept disabled=no dst-host=www.paypalobject.com

Now if you look at walled garden menu you will see dynamic entry for object we just added

[admin@493G] /ip hotspot walled-garden> print detail 
Flags: X - disabled, D - dynamic 
 0 D ;;; www.paypalobject.com
     dst-address=68.178.232.99 action=allow hits=0 

Also dynamic firewall and NAT rules are added to allow paypalobject.com resolved address

[admin@493G] /ip firewall filter> print dynamic 
Flags: X - disabled, I - invalid, D - dynamic 
...
 7 D ;;; www.paypalobject.com
     chain=hs-unauth action=return dst-address=68.178.232.99 
...

10 D ;;; www.paypalobject.com
     chain=hs-unauth-to action=return src-address=68.178.232.99 
[admin@493G] /ip firewall nat> print dynamic 
Flags: X - disabled, I - invalid, D - dynamic 
...
