Dear David

Thank you very much for your time to attend this request. i had actually
lost the hope because no one responded expect you, whereas there are
hundreds of guys in community using CoovaChilli as L3 modle, Anyways.

Setup here is bit different where CoovaChilli is running in Multi-Tenancy
mode (VLANs) due to the reason, every customer need their own login /
Landing page. i am currently running 10 instances for CoovaChilli. But i
will just focus on one instance to work and then i would know.

KINDLY, if you tell me, how you setup the connection from a remote router
(at hotspot) to Chilli. I am trying like this There is VLAN tagging in, i
think that i creating problem. i would also very much appreciate the other
methods those can be used for L3, such as VPN etc..

router eth1 = <-- Router Interface Connected (Point-2-Point) With
CoovaChilli  tun0
*tun0* = <-- CoovaChilli With *VLAN interface 406*
router eth0 = <--Router LAN Interface, Gateway For Hotspot
User (Remote)
my dhcp range -

*# Options i Activated For L3*
HS_STATIP= <- IP Range My DHCP Would Issue to Hotspot Users

*# Working Options For L2*
HS_NETWORK= *?????*
HS_TCP_PORTS="80 443"
HS_LOC_NAME="VLAN 406 Web Login"

Thanks / Regards
