Correct! I almost forgot that it's designed to be run on access
points! :) What I'm doing in this case is, simply, running Chillispot
in a VM and handling availability at that level. My access points are
completely unaware of Chillispot, except for being configured to use
Chillispot as a RADIUS server and having both the 802.1x SSID and the
"captive portal" SSID bound to the VLAN where Chillispot's DHCP server
is listening.

Best regards,
